A short stem optimized
Tri-Taper™ Design for increased stability and reduced trauma in less invasive hip approaches
Less invasive approaches to total hip surgery can be advantageous to patients due to the reduction in soft tissue trauma and the potential for earlier recovery. However, these techniques necessarily result in a surgical window with restrictive geometry which can complicate insertion and placement of traditional length femoral components. DJO Surgical designed the TaperFill® femoral stem with a shortened overall length and an anatomically congruent, Tri-Taper profile to ease insertion, prevent subsidence and achieve stability.
