SP-CL® Anatomically Adapted Cementless Hip System - 2

“The most important advancement in total hip arthroplasty in the last 50 years has been the adaption of femoral components to the anatomy of the femur.“* Being one of the inventors of the anatomical prostheses design, LINK has more than three decades of experience in the development of this type of hip stems. The new anatomical cementless hip prostheses system SP-CL® from LINK represents a consistent progression of the cemented Lubinus SP II® hip system towards cementless fixation – the SP II® concept that has proven its success in the Swedish Hip registry**. During the development of the...

Features of the SP-CL® Hip System: • Complementary to the cemented SP® family, backed by decades of successful use • Cementless metaphyseal fixation • Bioharmonic left and right stem types, each available in 13 standard sizes • Two CCD angles - 126° and 135° • Size and offset increase following stem growths from one size to the next Neutralising of torsional forces* acting on the proximal femur Photoelastic study of stresses Stress-load analysis proves that the true adaption to the femur of the LINK anatomically shaped hip stems result in the most natural stress distribution, eliminating...

Anatomic design and integrated antetorsion The stems in the SP-CL® system have a 12/14 taper and can be combined with every modular ceramic or metal prosthesis head made by LINK. The stem has an anatomic design with an S-shaped curvature in M/L view. An antetorsion of 5° is integrated in the stem. Ribbed profile for excellent primary stability Designed with deep grooves and from LINK® Tilastan-S® alloy the SP-CL® results in a stem with constructive and material elasticity to act against stress shielding. The pronounced ribs provide primary stability.

Trochanter protecting Protects the greater trochanter due to flattened proximal lateral profile. LINK® HX® (CaP) coating The surface promotes osteoconduction and allows stable osseointegration for secondary stability. HX®-Coating (calcium phosphate) vertical, cristalline coating structure IIIIIIIII Polished distal stem For easy and safe insertion the polished surface allows distal gliding to counteract thigh pain. The HX®-Coating is an osteoconductive coating approximately 15 µm thick. The proprietary electrochemical coating process results in extraordinary mechanical strength of the coating,...

Anatomical shape of the compressors Anatomically shaped stems require anatomically shaped instruments. The compressors of the SP-CL® system strictly follow the anatomical stem design and prepare a bony bed for the SP-CL® stem following the natural shape of the intramedullar canal of the proximal femur. The terraced profile of the compressors The SP-CL® stems are anchored in a bed of compacted cancellous bone. The teeth of the SP-CL® compressors ensure that the cancellous substance is firmly compact

High fixation zones Toothless bilateral isles for maximum grip of the proximal ribs. Press-fit The compressors and implants are matched to provide the optimal press-fit. Rounded distal tip of compressor for safe guidance and to avoid via falsa.
