Arcos® Modular Femoral Revision System

1000x1000_insetimage_Hips_Arcos

Zimmer Biomet’s Arcos Modular Femoral Revision System meets the demands of complex hip revision surgery by offering surgeons and OR staff the ability to customize both the hip implant and its corresponding instruments. Three proximal and five distal geometry options provide surgeons 117 proximal/distal combinations and multiple auxiliary fixation options for various femoral defects. This allows surgeons and OR staff the surgical control, customization options, and reproducibility to efficiently address both patient and practice needs.

The features of the Arcos Modular Femoral Revision System include:

  • Three proximal body options:
    • Cone
    • Broach
    • Calcar
  • Five distal stem options:
    • STSTM (Splined Tapered Stem)
    • Slotted
    • Bullet-tip
    • Interlocking
    • ETO (Extended Trochanteric Osteotomy)
  • Multiple surgical technique options
    • Ream-over
    • Sterile field
    • In-femur
  • One simple, easy to use instrumentation platform
  • Standard and high offset options reproduce various patient anatomies without lengthening the leg
  • Consistent sizing (1mm increments) for increased O.R. efficiency and accurate matching of the patient’s femur
  • Roller-hardened taper junction technology for greater fatigue strength and three times more strength in cantilever beam testing than non-roller hardened tapers1
  • Clinically proven PPS® coating allows for initial scratch-fit stability and biologic fixation2-9
  • Flexibility of titanium allows for stress transfer to preserve cortical density10

Providing Options for Intraoperative Flexibility

In femoral revisions, it is necessary to address metaphyseal and diaphyseal deficiencies independently. With three proximal bodies and five distal stems, which all work together regardless of size, a surgeon is able to address deficiencies in both regions of the femur independent of each other. This compatibility allows for a surgeon to change stems intraoperatively if encountered with something different from their preoperative planning. The availability of standard and high offset proximal body offerings are additional tools that allow the surgeon intraoperative flexibility to address patient needs as they arise.

 

Bolt and Claw Auxiliary Option

The Arcos Modular Femoral Revision System has the ability to use auxiliary implants to reattach the trochanteric fragment directly to the implant. By reattaching the trochanteric fragment in this fashion, the soft tissue and bony fragment are stabilized and provide an additional level of stability.

 

Streamlined Instrumentation

Designed with common proximal implant and instrument geometries, the Arcos Platform design allows for intraoperative revision efficiency by reducing the number of instrument cases required to a number comparable to a primary hip surgery.

Instrumentation should not limit surgeons’ implant selection or preferred surgical technique. Zimmer Biomet’s Arcos® Modular Femoral Revision System is designed to provide the option to use any implant combination with the surgical technique that is required to address each patient’s needs.

Designed with common proximal implant and instrument geometries, the Arcos platform design allows for intraoperative revision efficiency by reducing the number of instrument cases required to a number comparable to a primary hip surgery.
