The anterior approach: the logical MIS approach

The anterior approach: the logical MIS approach

The AMIStem is the first stem specifically designed for the AMIS® approach (anterior minimally invasive surgery), engineered to offer bone preservation and easy introduction in the femoral canal.

The AMIStem is the first stem specifically designed for the AMIS® approach (anterior minimally invasive surgery), engineered to offer bone preservation and easy introduction in the femoral canal.

 

Based on the Quadra® triple tapered design and Quadra® clinical experience[1], the AMIStem incorporates new features which simplify the AMIS® approach.

 

REDUCED TO THE MAXIMUM
The main aim in developing AMIStem has been to facilitate the broaching and stem introduction during the AMIS® approach without compromising the implant stability. The reduced lateral shoulder and the optimized length of the AMIStem minimize the amount of bone removed and decrease the space needed to introduce the stem by 33% in comparison with a standard straight rectangular stem design[2].

The result is an excellent AMIS®-friendly stem with a proven stability[3].

 

 

REDEFINING THR: THE AMIS® SYNERGY
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.
Thanks to its expertise, unique in the market, Medacta International is the worldwide leader for AMIS® (Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery), with worldwide learning centers to teach the surgical approach, permanent support for surgeons starting with AMIS® and continuous development of specific AMIS® instrumentation.
With the use of AMIStem you will enter the Medacta® International AMIS® world.

Discover:

  • The definitive MIS approach: AMIS®;
  • The dedicated instrumentation for AMIS®;
  • The AMIS® Mobile Leg Positioner: the original orthopaedic table extension that mechanically assists throughout the procedure, making surgery easier and reproducible;
  • The dedicated AMIS® education program based on Medacta®'s extensive experience.
