The survivorship rates for uncemented stems are good, but depend on stem design, material and type of coating. Primary stability of the stem is crucial to insure bone ingrowth……”We are absolutely delighted to see our 10 Year survival rates for the SPS stem published in Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, March 2012. The SPS stem is an anatomic design based upon the 3D computerized analysis of hundreds of CT scans which allow the average metaphyseal femoral shape to be defined and implant performance optimised. The 10 Year Kaplan- Meier stem survivorship analysis was 100%”, 3D pre- operative planning with our proprietary software and long term survivorship of our implant is hugely encouraging.
