- Smith & Nephew has introduced its new REDAPT Revision Acetabular Fully Porous Cup with CONCELOC technology
- The device is the company’s first 3D printed titanium hip implant
Smith & Nephew, a global medical technology firm, has introduced its new REDAPT Revision Acetabular Fully Porous Cup with CONCELOC technology.
The REDAPT Cup is designed for use in revision cases where the bone makes implant fixation and stability more difficult.
According to a release, the device, the company’s first 3D printed titanium hip implant, features an entirely porous structure that is similar to cancellous bone. The device also uses the new REDAPT Variable Angle Locking Screws that help prevent any wiggling of the implant after the operation.
The firm received Food and Drug Administration approval for the device with CONCELOC Technology in November 2015. It is currently available in the US.
“We’re excited about the creative possibilities this new manufacturing process holds for surgeons and their patients,” said Mike Donoghue, Vice President of Global Reconstruction at Smith & Nephew. “Bringing to market a 3D-printed titanium acetabular cup for difficult revision procedures is just one example of the potential of this remarkable technology.”
