Modular acetabular cup

The base is a cementless titanium acetabular shell containing 8-10 holes. The novelty of the concept is the threaded acetabular rim allowing the assembly of a titanium ring containing several threaded holes. The aim of the ring is the possibility of mounting semi-rigid plates in 5 shapes plus 1 hook. These plates may be bent to align to the acetabular bone surface. As they can be applied in any direction the semi-rigidity does not compromise the stability of the cup. The plates can be used for primary stabilization by direct fixation to the pelvis with screws, or they can be used to hold and with the aid of screws transfix structural allo- or autografts. We have been using this cup since 2006.
