Benefits

Flexibility

  • Trabecular Metal has a modulus of elasticity that is similar to cancellous bone for more normal load sharing which has the potential to minimize stress shielding.1

Stability

  • Trabecular Metal has a high coefficient of friction versus cancellous bone and the TM-S device has geometric features designed to limit micromotion, enhance initial stability and reduce the likelihood of expulsion.3

Biocompatibility

  • Trabecular Metal Material is made from commercially pure tantalum which is demonstrated to have excellent biocompatibility.2

Porosity

  • The TM-S device is made completely of Trabecular Metal which is up to 80% porous with a 100% open and interconnected structure. Featuring an average pore size of 440 microns, it is an osteoconductive scaffold which is designed to support bony in-growth and vascularization.1
