Evolution of DePuy Cemented Cups For almost 50 years, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPe) has been used as an acetabular bearing material bearing material that shows excellent clinical results.1-2 In 1977 the pressure injection flange was introduced to improve acetabular fixation and the In 1994 the UHMWPe used was upgraded to In 1962 Charnley implanted his stem for the first early pressurisation of the bone cement. The ENDURON™ polyethylene, a more consistent form time in combination with a UHMWPe acetabular incidence of radiolucent lines at the cement-bone of the material....

Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) n lull OIK h Wcar-RoiUnnt I Mm 1 lieh Wnphi I'l.^rttiik-rtc fm TtHat Hip RcpLxctnctm Engh et al reported a 95% reduction in the linear wear rate of MARATHON XLPE compared to ENDURON polyethylene at mean follow up of 5.7 years in 20067 In 2007 Home and Devane showed a 77% reduction in volumetric wear of MARATHON XLPE compared to ENDURON after 4 years The introduction of MARATHON Cross-Linked Polyethylene in 1998 was an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary advance in the adaptation of UHMWPe as an advanced bearing surface. The level of irradiation (50 kGy)...

MARATHON XLPE Cemented Cup Size Range MARATHON XLPE Cemented Cup Size Range (mm) The introduction of MARATHON Cross-linked 36 polyethylene as a high performance PE bearing for cemented cup manufacture has allowed the existing size range to be extended to include a Bearing Diameter new 36 mm bearing diameter combined with a 45 mm outside diameter (please refer to the table opposite for the full size range). 26 An area of concern is the rate of wear at the bearing surface and the need to mimimise the amount of polyethylene wear debris produced (related to head size) that can lead to...

Approach to the Acetabulum Use the approach with which you are most familiar to achieve the best surgical results. The MARATHON XLPE Cemented Cup Instrumentation is designed to accommodate all surgical approaches. Regardless of the surgical approach used, it is vital that a full 360 degree view of the acetabulum be achieved prior to beginning its preparation. The entire acetabular rim and transverse acetabular ligament should be identifiable. If the view is restricted it may be necessary to increase the incision length. Reaming Remove the labrum and any osteophytes from the acetabular rim....

The size of reamer should then be increased incrementally and used to expand the cavity, taking care not to progress further medially. Spherical reaming should continue until good quality bone is exposed anteriorly and posteriorly, at which point further up-sizing of the reamer should stop. The reamer may be progressed superiorly so that good bone is exposed over the entire acetabulum. The final cavity will be slightly oval in shape (narrowest in the anterior/posterior direction), as defined by the quality of the underlying bone (Figure 4). It is important that the medial, anterior and...

Cup Positioning Peer reviewed publications highlight the importance of acetabular component positioning in relation to short and long term outcomes during total hip arthroplasty for all types of bearing materials.12-16 Cup positioning should be varied to optimise fixation, range of motion, dislocation resistance and to minimise the likelihood of subluxation, impingement and edge loading. This may be assessed during pre-operative planning, acetabular preparation and cup trialling. Sub-optimal component positioning may lead to edge loading, dislocation, increased wear, and polyethylene...

Trial A trial cup exists for each definitive implant size. The trial should be attached to the introducer instrument (introducers are available for each of the head diameters) providing an opportunity to trial the final implant position in addition to checking the size. Trials are compatible with all sizes of introducer with mating features marked accordingly. The correct size of trial should sit within the acetabular cavity with 3-4 mm of clear space all around it. Figure 5 The introducer instrument provides a guide to allow correct orientation of the implant. When the shaft of the...

Assemble X-ray Marker Wire implant component The MARATHON XLPE Cemented Cup X-ray marker wire is supplied as a separate component that should be assembled to the implant component prior to implantation. The marker wire provides useful postoperative information regarding cup inclination, anteversion and X-ray marker wire retroversion, and its use should be considered locating hole The wire must be correctly orientated to give the proper appearance on the X-ray. In order to assemble the wire to the device, open the sterile pack as normal and remove the implant component and the X-ray marker...

Prepare Implant Assemble the implant onto the appropriate size of introducer instrument. The implant has laser marking to identify when it is correctly assembled for the side of the operated hip (Figure 12). When correctly assembled, the exposed side marker “L” or “R” should be the same as the side of the operated hip (Figure 13). Before trimming the flange it may be useful to offer the implant up to the acetabulum to check the size. The flange should be trimmed to size (using the supplied scissors), away from the acetabulum. Figure 12 Markings on the flange relate back to the reamer...
