What is Corail Pinnacle?

What is Corail Pinnacle?

The hip prosthesis consists of 4 major components. A titanium stem (Corail) and titanium bowl (Pinnacle) are placed in the upper leg and pelvic bone, respectively. Both components have been manufactured and distributed for decades by DepuySynthes, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

What type of stem is Corail?

The Corail® stem is made of forged titanium alloy (TiAl6V4). It is a straight implant, with a quadrangular cross section. The proximal part is flared in the sagittal and the coronal plane to provide three-dimensional stabilisation in the metaphyseal area.

Is robotic hip surgery anterior or posterior?

Dr. Boone typically uses an anterior approach in hip replacement, which means he makes a small incision at the front of your hip to avoid muscles and tendons. The robotic system provides real-time feedback and enhanced flexibility as it carefully removes damaged bone and tissue.

What is Pinnacle cup made of?

Today, the Pinnacle cups come in ceramic-on-polyethylene and metal-on-polyethylene options depending on patient needs. Tapered Hip System stems have been used for more than 15 years to attach hip implants to the femur.

What is Porocoat?

Porocoat Coating. The Porocoat coating is a classic porous coating that has been clinically used for more than 40 years. The coating is firmly combined with randomly arranged sintered titanium beads to form interconnected holes for bone growth.

How long is the recovery from robotic hip replacement?

Complete recovery from a total hip replacement with robotic-arm assisted technology can take from about 3 to 6 months.

What is DePuy Pinnacle?

The DePuy Pinnacle Acetabular Cup Liner is a metal liner designed for use with the Pinnacle Acetabular Shells and the matching femoral head which are constructed with a proprietary alloy containing cobalt, chromium, and molybdenum.

What type of hip replacement implant is best?

The Taperloc femoral hip replacement is one of the best hip replacements used in the world – for any age and activity level. As the most successful titanium hip, the Taperloc femoral component has proven to stay firmly attached even after 28 years, allowing countless people to live life on their terms.

What is the DePuy summit stem made of?

The Summit® Cementless Hip Replacement System from Depuy-Synthes is a tapered cementless titanium hip stem, whose features include a tapered neck geometry, a Porocoat porous or DuoFix HA coating, an anatomical medial curve, a grit blasted diaphyseal region and a polished distal tip to reduce cortical impingement.

How big is the incision for robotic hip replacement?

The surgeon makes a 10- to 12-inch incision on the side of the hip, then splits or detaches the muscles from the hip, allowing the hip to be dislocated and fully viewed. The surgeon removes the damaged femoral head and inserts a metal stem into the hollow center of the femur.

Is robotic hip surgery better?

Studies show that robotic-assisted surgery is five times better at matching leg length compared with conventional surgery. The angle of the hip joint is another key factor in the success of the procedure, and robotic techniques are about twice as accurate as manual surgery.

Is robotic hip replacement better?

What is the DePuy Pinnacle cup made of?

The Pinnacle Acetabular Cup System from Depuy comprises a 180 degree titanium shell with coating options including Porocoat (titanium sintered beads) Duofix (Porocoat with an HA coating) and Gription (high friction porous surface).

What is a Hemi in orthopedics?

Hemi means “half” and arthroplasty refers to “joint replacement.” Replacing the entire hip joint is called total hip replacement (THR). A hemiarthroplasty is generally used to treat a fractured hip.

What metal are cemented summit stems made from?

Cobalt chrome alloy was selected for the component as its greater rigidity transmits stress more evenly throughout the cement mantle.

How long does ceramic on ceramic hip replacement last?

How long does a ceramic hip last? On average, hip replacements last 20 to 25 years before repair or replacement. In one study , only 4.4 percent of people who received a hip replacement required revision surgery in the first 10 years after surgery. About 15 percent required revision by the 20-year mark.

What are Corail and Pinnacle?

A titanium stem (Corail) and titanium bowl (Pinnacle) are placed in the upper leg and pelvic bone, respectively. Both components have been manufactured and distributed for decades by DepuySynthes, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

How is the Corail stem implanted?

The Corail stem may be implanted using any of the surgical techniques for total hip arthroplasty. The goal of any technique selected is adequate visualization of both the acetabulum and the proximal femur so that a direct view down the femoral canal can be gained and the entire rim and depth of the acetabulum visualized. PREOPERATIVE PLAN

What are the different stem options for the Corail broach?

The Corail is available in three stem options, a standard collarless/collared stem, a high offset collarless stem, and a coxa vara collared stem and offers the appropriate neck segment to match up with the stem option. With the Corail broach in situ, attach one of the three neck segment options.

How do you perform a Corail compaction neck resection?

Beginning with the smallest Corail compaction broach attached to the selected broach handle, progressively enlarge the metaphyseal cavity by compacting and shaping the cancellous bone until the level of the neck resection is reached.
