®Zimmer® Segmental System - 2

ep Forward mmer® Segmental System is designed to address patients with severe bone loss associated with disease, trauma or revision. Cross-system capabilities with the NexGen® RH Knee provide the flexibility necessary for challenging reconstructions. No other salvage system has Trabecular Metal™ Technology at key fixation interfaces, enabling biologic fixation. Building on the design of the NexGen RH Knee, this system features a modular hinge mechanism that results in 95% of the load being carried by the tibial condyles.1 Cross-System Capabilities The ability to interchange select...

Torsional Fatigue Test Testing representing 10 years of stair-climb activity was completed. All segment pairs completed testing without fracture, deformation or relative rotation between segments.1 Segmental System Stem Test Segmental stems and cemented Trabecular Metal Technology collars were paired with a MOST Options® proximal femur and cyclically tested at 7.5 times body-weight. The components survived testing without fracture and with no evidence of loosening at the stem/collar interface. Combined Load Test The distal femur was tested to simulate increased hyperextension forces typical...

®Zimmer® Segmental System - 5

The Segmental System utilizes many Zimmer technologies to address severe bone loss from disease, trauma or revision. No system is more versatile, flexible or adaptable for salvage cases. Anteversion tab and pockets alignment helps to match patient anatomy The proprietary RH design passes 95% of the load through the tibial condyles Tapered articular surface allows pairing of a larger size distal femur with a smaller size tibia Strong one-piece hinge can be used with the Segmental Distal Femur or the RH Knee Trabecular Metal Technology collar enhances fixation A choice of collar diameters...
