Mpact offers a system of hemispherical press-fit acetabular shells in titanium alloy that provides different solutions according to patient needs, addressing primary and revision indications.
Cementless hemispherical shell design with porous coating surface treatment has a long and successful clinical history.[1,2]
The Mpact shells follow this philosophy, enhancing primary and biological secondary stability thanks to Mectagrip, highly porous plasma spray coating.
OPTIMAL PRIMARY AND SECONDARY STABILITY
Thanks to the coefficient of friction, pore size and distribution of Mectagrip[3, 4]
LOCKING SYSTEM FOR THE LINER
Which minimizes micro-movements, preventing backside wear[5,6]
CERAMIC LINERS FOR REVISION CASES
Due to the optimized thickness of the Rim-Hole shell
For a straight forward surgery for any preferred approach
MULTIPLE SHELL VERSIONS
Available to secure adequate fixation to the available bone stock
OPTIMIZED FEMORAL HEAD/SHELL DIAMETER RATIO

Mectagrip is the porous coating treatment applied to the Mpact shells, consisting of a layer of commercially pure titanium deposited through a special Vacuum Plasma Spray technique (VPS). The VPS method used to deposit the Titanium porous coating on the implant shows potential advantages:
Pure titanium composition for optimal biocompatibility;
High friction coefficient increasing grip at the bone interface with bone;
Favourable environment for bone:[3,7,8,9]
Locking systems for the polyethylene liners:
The MULTI-HOLE SHELL allows for the use of cancellous bone screws in 12 to 17 locations (size dependant) on the dome and equatorial region.
The RIM-HOLE SHELL allows use of cancellous and cortical bone screws
CERAMIC LINERS are available with the Rim-Hole shell from size 56 to size 70 mm
The anterior approach, strengthened by several years of clinical experience, is the only technique which follows a path both intermuscular and internervous and therefore reduces considerably the risk of damaging periarticular structures such as muscles, tendons, vessels and nerves.
Medacta International is the world leader for educating and supporting surgeons in their pursuit of Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery (AMIS). Reference Centers, located throughout the world, provide the necessary AMIS educational experience and Medacta offers continuous support for surgeons, as well as constantly improving and developing the industries most specialised instrumentation platform.Using AMIStem you can enter Medacta International’s world of AMIS.
The AMIS Mobile Leg Positioner will be supplied as part of the instrumentation to help ensure effective and reliable positioning of the leg during surgery. Traction, adduction and hyperextension have never been so easy.
