UCP™ Stem

UCP™ Stem

Overview

UCP Stem is designed with clinically proven philosophies to reproduce excellent outcomes. Cement friendly profile, including polished surface and tri-tapered geometry, reduce shear stress on cement. Collarless design and various insertion depth options allowing surgeons to balance leg length with ease. The stem is made by CoCrMo material to provide strong fatigue strength. UCP stem is available with offset variants and stem length options to deal with a wide variety of clinical challenges.

Design for cemented used, the UCP™ Stem is available in both primary and revision replacement surgery. The polished surface with tapered geometry design reduces the abrasive damage to the cement mantle. Other notable design features include:


  • 1 12/14 Morse taper — compatible with CoCrMo metal head and BIOLOX®delta ceramic head

  • 2 Leg length adjustment options — facilitate correcting leg-length discrepancy

  • 3 Mirror-polished surface finish — reduces the risk of metallic abrasion at the cement
    interface and protects cement from breakage

  • 4 Forged CoCrMo alloy — strong fatigue strength reduces the risk of mental fracture

  • 5 Distal centralizer — guides the stem into neutral alignment during insertion and allows stem
    subside to stable position without creating excessive stresses in the distal cement mantle

  • 6 Cement restrictor — prevents the bone cement from leaking during the delivery and pressurization

  • 7 High offset option — available in both standard and high offset options which can enable femoral
    offset restoration and soft tissue tensioning without affecting leg length


  • 8 Tri-wedge design — increases torsional stability and reduces stresses on cement mantle

  • 9 Revision long stem options — 180, 210, and 230 mm long stem options indicate for proximal
    bone loss cases
