LINK® IP Acetabular Cup

Hips  –  Primary  –  Cemented

Key Features

The cemented IP hip acetabular cup made from UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) was, like all LINK artificial cups, especially designed for patients, who are not candidates for a cementless system, and for patients requiring immediate mobilization following surgery. Its comparatively deep cup interior design resists luxation. The different designs with and without “snap-fit effect” additionally facilitate adequate implantation for patients at increased risk of luxation.

The LINK IP hip acetabular cup, together with the SPII® hip prosthesis stem and as an alternative to the Lubinus® hip acetabular cup forms an excellent anatomical implant.

LINK IP hip acetabular cups made from X-LINKed® polyethylene allow the use of prosthesis heads with a diameter of up to 36 mm. As a result range of motion is increased and joint stability optimized. Polyethylene wear from cups made of X-LINKed® material is considerably reduced, which extends the lifetime of the implant components.
