The CLS®  Spotorno® Stem - 2

The concept underlying the CLS Spotorno Stem is based on the idea of predominantly proximal anchorage and a long-lasting mechanical stability through osseointegration. This cementless stem, with its characteristic three-dimensional wedge shape and sharpened ribs in the proximal region, was launched in 1984. Since then, the innovative CLS Spotorno Stem has not undergone any major changes, but has enjoyed certain technical improvements brought about by experience. Over 20 years of extensively documented clinical results and over 500,000 implants (as of 2007) demonstrate the success and...

The CLS Spotorno Stem Three-Dimensional Taper and Trapezoid Cross-Section • Proximal transmission of the loads • Rounded edges to avoid stress risers • Proximal transmission of the loads and thigh pain • Press-fit even when subsidence is present • Excellent primary and rotational stability Osseointegration • Grit-blasted osteophilic titanium alloy Ribs in the Proximal Region • Large contact area for osseointegration • Increased primary and rotational stability

1980: The Prototype The initial idea was to achieve proximal anchorage by means of a stem with a spinous macrostructure in the proximal region. This earned the implant the nickname of “shaved porcupine prosthesis”. This stem served as a model for the CLS Spotorno Stem. 1983: Creation of the CLS Stem: The Macrostructure With the introduction of the Protasul®-64 titanium alloy, the stem was given a trapezoidal shape, which implements the theoretical prerequisites for press-fit in practice. The proximal design, made up of ribs running longitudinally, has been designed to optimize the...

The study conducted in Pietra Ligure as well as the work carried out by Noble2 on the geometry of the proximal femur describes the correlation between the CCD angle and the offset, when using the same neck length. This correlation has been taken into account in the offset concept of the CLS Spotorno Stem. The three CCD angles of the CLS Spotorno Stem allow for a high number of morpho-types. Thanks to the tapered shape, each stem acts as a wedge, so that at least 3 different sizes of each version of the CLS Spotorno Stem can be inserted into the intramedullary canal. Along with the various...

Since the CCD angle and the offset are not constant values, and these values vary greatly from one individual to another, the CLS Spotorno Stem now offers a wide range of offset options, to allow for an adequate restoration of biomechanical parameters like the center of rotation, the CCD angle, the leg length, and the soft-tissue balancing.

Long-term clinical studies, along with the worldwide acceptance and use of the CLS Spotorno Stem, are evidence of the quality of this implant. Many years of consistency in the underlying concept of the CLS Spotorno system have led to conclusive information based on longterm studies on the behavior of the prosthesis, its tolerability and its ability to osseointegrate.
