HIGH PERFORMANCES WITH NO DRAWBACKS
The Versafitcup® System increased its product range thanks to the introduction of the HighCross double mobility liner: the alternative to Metal-On-Metal Large Heads and Ceramic-On-Ceramic. This new product combines all the advantages of Double Mobility design with the enhanced properties of cross-linked polyethylene:

  • The Double Mobility design includes different features giving important benefits: a low wear rate; a low dislocation rate; an increased Range of Motion.
  • The Highcross® material guarantees a low wear rate, reducing the risk of one of the main causes of implant failure: osteolysis due to polyethylene wear debris.

 

The Versafitcup® Highcross® Double Mobility Liner has important benefits when compared to conventional cup design:


1. Low dislocation rate (the diameter responsible for hip stability is the liner diameter, due to the retentive mechanism for the femoral head).


 

2. Low wear rate thanks to the Highcross® dual mobility and third articulation.


 

3. Big Range of Motion thanks to increased head/neck ratio.

  • Better than standard UHMWPe liners: - Further wear reduction thanks to Highcross technology.[2]
  • Better than Metal-on-Metal: No risk of metal ions release.
  • Better than Ceramic-on-Ceramic: No risk of liner fracture - No squeaking.
