Medacta Receives CE Marking for the Lateralized Glenosphere

CASTEL SAN PIETRO, 8 October 2019 - Medacta International has recently obtained CE marking for the lateralized glenosphere. This new implant further expands the Medacta offering for shoulder arthroplasty, which now features a broader range of options for reverse shoulder replacement surgery.

The Medacta Shoulder System is a modular solution that includes wide-ranging sizes, adjustable offset and innovative configurations both in the anatomic and reverse configuration. It is compatible with, and can be further enhanced by, the CT-based MyShoulder 3D preoperative planning solution, offering patient-specific humeral and glenoid guides.

The lateralized glenosphere features a more lateralized centre of rotation compared to the standard glenosphere already included in the Medacta Shoulder System offering. The potential benefits are an improved range of motion, as well as a reduced risk of scapular notching.

This new CE mark clearance exemplifies Medacta's continuous commitment to leverage expertise gained throughout orthopaedics for the development of exceptional shoulder solutions.
