MODULAR RESECTION STEM Limb salvage surgery is today a reliable option in the management of bone tumors. Goals of proximal femur replacement are preservation of limb length, restoration of appropriate hip center, and achievement of satisfactory stability throughout a functional range of motion. The Modular Resection Stem SMR Resection combines simplicity and versatility providing a wide range of recostructive options. The system consists of three modular basic elements: • Proximal component (135° neck - shaft angle); • Distal component; • Locking screw; The modularity allows intraoperative...

CYLINDRICAL SPACER MATERIALS Titanium alloy Ti6Al4V Grade 5 ELI (ISO 5832-3), which ensures excellent bio-compatibility and mechanical strength. The surface finish of the proximal component is obtained by abrasion with corundum to increase the contact surface and thereby improve prosthesis-bone anchorage. An additional component can be added to the system: the 50mm cylindrical spacer. Spacers can be used, for a maximum of two pieces, with proximal components longer than or equal to 175mm. In this way, longer stem lengths (225, 250, 275, 300mm) can be achieved and even longer resections can...
