Stryker Launches Advanced Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Application
Mar 25 15
Stryker Orthopaedics announced at the 2015 American Academy of Orthopaedics the regulatory clearance of an advanced robotic-arm assisted total hip arthroplasty application for use with its Mako system. Complementing the surgical approach of choice, the Mako System will be compatible with a surgeon's Stryker implant of choice. Stryker's Accolade II®, Secur-Fit® Advanced, Anato and Exeter® femoral implants coupled with the Trident® Acetabular System and its precisely engineered X3® polyethylene provide surgeons with the performance of Stryker's implant designs. A recent study found that manual acetabular cup placement fell within the acceptable safe range only 50% of the time. Robotic-arm assisted total hip arthroplasty has been shown to provide excellent accuracy and precision with regard to planned cup position, leg length, and offset.
