The Arthrosurface HemiCAP™ Shoulder Hemiarthroplasty System restores the articular surface geometry of the humeral head and preserves functional structures using an innovative 3 dimensional mapping system and a contoured articular resurfacing implant.
The Arthrosurface ® HemiCAP ®WAVE Patello-Femoral System restores the unique articular surface geometry of the Patella and the Femoral Trochlear groove; creating a congruent pathway by using an intraoperative 3 dimensional mapping system and contoured articular resurfacing implants.
If it ever fails, it can be replaced with another HemiCAP ® device or, if necessary, it may be converted to a joint replacement. Does it “burn any bridges?”
The Arthrosurface ® HemiCAP ® Shoulder System restores the articular surface geometry of the humeral head and preserves functional structures using an innovative 3 dimensional mapping system and a contoured articular resurfacing implant.
Two innovative studies reported here highlight our work in the area of cartilage resurfacing and the use of the HemiCAP ® for osteochondral lesions in the knee.
• CMS: There is no CMS National Coverage Determination for the HemiCAP great toe resurfacing hemiarthroplasty implant or other MTP joint arthroplasty implant.
Pain relief and activity ratings support the concept of a mobility preserving treatment with HemiCAP ® resurfacing. The implant screw fixation is a critical strong point in light of previous reports on loosening associated with other arthroplasty procedures.
Depending on the degree of cartilage injury, age and activity level, patients may be candidates for either a cheilectomy, arthrodesis (fusion), total joint replacement or now with the advent of resurfacing technologies, a joint preserving procedure such as the Arthrosurface HemiCAP ® system.
The objective of this investigation is to quantify the effectiveness of the HemiCAP ® contoured articular prosthesis in the management of pain and restoration of joint function.
24 First Metatarsophalangeal Implants LAWRENCE M. OLOFF MICHAEL A. FEIST Surgical correction of hallux limitus or degenerative articular disease of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MPJ), whether as singular conditions or in the face of concomitant hallux abducto valgus, is a dilemma with ...
