What material is the Stryker knee made of?
Triathlon Tritanium combines the kinematics of Triathlon with the latest in highly porous biologic fixation technology. Tritanium’s innovative tibial baseplate and metal-backed patella components are SOMA-designed and enabled by Stryker’s proprietary Additive Manufacturing technology.
What is Stryker Triathlon?
Total Knee System. The Triathlon Total Knee System is a primary total knee replacement system designed to work with the body. Triathlon has been implanted in over 3 million patients worldwide. Triathlon Total Knee is available for use with the Mako System for Mako Total Knee.
How much does a Stryker Knee Replacement Cost?
Stryker is launching its Triathlon total knee on its Mako robotic system, reportedly priced at $1 million, at a time of bundled payments and cost consciousness in joint replacement procedures.
What is oxinium technology?
OXINIUM material— a metal alloy with the surface transformed to ceramic using a patented process —has proven to be a superior metal for use in hip and knee implants due to its reduced friction and increased resistance to scratching and abrasion.
What type of metal is used in total knee replacement?
The metals used in artificial knees are alloys of cobalt-chromium and titanium. The bearing portion of the joint is made of a high-grade, wear-resistant plastic. The metal-plastic bearing combination is the most common type used in knee replacement implants worldwide.
What is the attune knee replacement made of?
Attune knee replacements include metal and plastic parts. Metal Attune knee components are made from a Cobalt-Chromium-Molybdenum alloy. Other Attune parts are made from DePuy’s own polyethylene formula.
What is Tritanium made of?
Tritanium is made from high-quality, commercially pure Titanium. Studies have shown that it improves bone ingrowth when compared to other alloys3. This technology may be especially beneficial for patients with low bone density and the 55% of Americans age 50 and older diagnosed with osteoporosis4.
What happens after Mako total knee replacement?
After Mako Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement, most people can go home the same day as surgery or the next day. You’ll get up and walk around, with assistance, the same day as surgery. You’ll walk with a walker for a few days or up to a week — mainly for balance.
Is Total Knee Replacement considered a disability?
Knee replacement surgery can result in winning disability benefits if you can no longer work. Especially, if you have chronic pain and cannot work for longer than 12 months. Typically, over 600,000 knee replacement surgeries are performed every year in the United States.
How long will a Stryker knee replacement last?
In 85% to 90% of people who have a total knee replacement, the knee implants used will last about 15 to 20 years.
What is the best knee replacement?
A TKR is now among the safest and most effective of all standard orthopedic surgeries. During a TKR, a surgeon removes the surface of your bones that have been damaged by osteoarthritis or other causes and replaces the knee with an artificial implant that is selected to fit your anatomy.
What metal is oxinium?
Oxinium is the brand name of a material used for replacement joints manufactured by the reconstructive orthopedic surgery division of medical devices company Smith & Nephew. It consists of a zirconium alloy metal substrate that transitions into a ceramic zirconium oxide outer surface.
Do they use titanium in knee replacement?
All knee replacements, partial or total, will have parts made of a few different materials (likely metals and plastic). In most cases, each component is built from titanium, cobalt-chromium alloys, or a titanium and cobalt mixed metal.
Is oxidized zirconium metal?
Oxidized zirconium is a new material that combines the strength of a metal with the wear properties of a ceramic. It remains unknown whether implants with a zirconium femoral component can be used safely in TKA.
