Zimmer NexGen Trabecular Metal Primary Patella
Company : Zimmer Inc
UMDC Code : 102165
The Zimmer NexGen Trabecular Metal Material Primary Patella—a porous patella. A biomaterial structurally similar to cancellous bone, Trabecular Metal Material has up to 80% porosity and physical and mechanical properties very similar to bone. No competitive product on the market today offers a material that compares to it in these respects. The Zimmer NexGen Trabecular Metal Material Primary Patella mimics the shape of the NexGen Patellar Groove in mid-to-deep flexion. This optimizes the patello-femoral contact area, where stresses on the patella are the highest. In addition, the NexGen Primary Porous Patella possesses a metal backing with low stiffness, which may further minimize stresses.
