Plasmafit PRO® Acetabular System with Vitelene® Liner

Feel the Fit

Plasmafit Pro Acetabular System

The Plasmafit PRO Acetabular System with Vitelene liner represents a new approach for stability and performance when used in conjunction with a prosthetic femoral head and hip stem as treatment for total hip arthroplasty.

The System:

  • Two-piece system with a cementless titanium acetabular shell and a highly crosslinked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) vitamin E blended liner.

The Stability:

  • High level of primary stability provided by hemispherical and slightly flattened acetabular cup design, combined with the rough titanium plasma spray on the outer surface.

The Integrity:

  • Vitamin E blended polyethylene liner provides a bearing surface with oxidative stability that maintains mechanical properties and resists wear.1

 

Plasmafit PRO acetabular cup features a modified dome shape for exceptional anchoring and immediate grip-feel during implantation. The equatorial pressfit directs forces to the rim which minimizes the potential for mal-alignment when seated in the socket.

Enhanced Surface

Plasmafit PRO acetabular cup has an enhanced surface to promote strong primary stability as well as long-term implant fixation.

Titanium porous plasma spray coating

Titanium porous plasma spray coating is designed to allow biologic fixation between bone and prosthesis for long-term survivorship. 

Internal Design

System provides a strong interlock between the shell and liner to restrict micro-movement and reduce the risk of osteolysis.

Secure fixation of the liner facilitates a high stability against tilting and rotational forces in vivo.

Vitelene™, a highly crosslinked polyethylene blended with vitamin E, combined with the Biolox®2 Delta femoral head delivers an advanced bearing surface with the aim to reduce wear and maintain mechanical integrity for high performance articulation demands.

Reduce Wear3

Reduced Wear Reduction Chart

Vitelene showed an 89% reduction in wear compared to conventional polyethylene after accelerated aging testing per ASTM F2003.3

1Vitelene is formulated with antioxidant protection that prevents oxidation and degradation of polyethylene and matinains mechanical properties after accelerated aging per ASTM F2003. Bench testing is not necessarily indicative of clinical performance. Data on file.
