Zimmer Trabecular Metal™ Glenoid Fixation

Zimmer Biomet offers surgeons a glenoid component to hold the hope of enduring fixation. The high-friction coefficient of Trabecular Metal material plus strength and flexibility provide initial stability. Trabecular Metal material's osteoconductive properties support vascularization and are designed to allow for more normal bone formation and maintenance.

Biomechanical testing shows initial, intermediate, and long-term stability superior to that of an all-polyethylene cemented glenoid. Trabecular Metal material’s osteoconductive properties support vascularization1 that allows for more normal bone formation and maintenance.

Zimmer Trabecular Metal Technology. No other porous material so closely resembles the structure, function and physiology of trabecular bone.

Trabecular Metal Material is a highly porous structure with architecture that creates an initial scratch fit and facilitates biologic ingrowth. In clinical use since 1997 this innovative technology provides excellent initial scratch fit and stable fixation.
