HemiCAP Shoulder – surface endoprosthesis of the humeral head

Advantages:

  • individual selection and adjustment to the size and shape of the patient’s joint,
  • significantly less cartilage and bone tissue removed than in traditional joint replacement,
  • “in-lay” technique, i.e. sinking the implant into the joint so that it is flush with the surrounding cartilage and not on the surface, thanks to which the pressure exerted on the tissues does not change,
  • preservation of the motor function and primary structures of the joint, which prevents irreversible changes from being introduced.

Indications:

  • degenerative changes in the shoulder joint/avascular necrosis of the humeral head.

Components:

  • kapa (humeral head component made of CoCrMo alloy, sputtered with CPTi titanium on the side in contact with the bone), – titanium fixing screw,
  • polyethylene insert (articular component of the acetabulum).
