Cementless cup with holes. The upper quadrant of cup has holes for Ø6.5 mm cortical screws
Coating: 80 µm thick HAP layer over sandblasted surface
Primary fixation ensured by +0.5 mm equatorial press-fit:
- Inverted chevron-shaped notches provide rotation stability
- Horizontal parallel grooves around equator optimise hold of cup in bone
The liners are available in standard (flat rim) or hooded (10° posterior rim) versions.
The hooded version has a chamfer at the convexity where it meets the femoral head, to prevent limitations in range of motion.
The EQUATEUR® instrumentation can be used during conventional surgery or with Computer Assisted Surgery (AMPLIVISION®):
- Computer Assisted Surgery of the cup and femoral stem helps to maintain leg length and offset
- The EQUATEUR® cup has its own instrumentation set and one that is shared with the EQUATEUR® and HORIZON® II cups.
