LINK® FC + FAL Hip Acetabular Cup

Hips  –  Primary  –  Cemented

Key Features

The LINK FC and FAL hip acetabular cups made from UHMW-polyethylene were, like all LINK- artificial cups, specifically designed for patients, who are not candidates for a cementless system, and for patients requiring immediate mobilization following surgery.

If the range of motion should be increased and joint stability optimized, prosthesis heads with a diameter of up to 36 mm can be used with the FAL hip acetabular cup made from X-LINKed® polyethylene. Abrasive wear with cups from X-LINKed® polyethylene is significantly reduced and the service life of the implant components extended.

LINK® FC and FAL Hip Acetabular Cups

  • X-LINKed® UHMWPE and standard-UHMWPE
  • High cement compression due to circulating flange

  • UHMW polyethylene with low wear ratings highly proven over three decades
  • Spectrum of sizes from 48–68 mm in diameter
  • Use of heads 36 mm in diameter, starting from a cup outer diameter of 54 mm
