Ascension Orthopedics, a provider in PyroCarbon orthopedic devices, has released the Titan Modular Shoulder Fracture Prosthesis to address difficult fracture procedures.
The system’s modularity allows the surgeon to fit patient anatomy by independently adjusting the height of the modular body and stem without need for jigs or use of cement.
University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson William Geissler said the Titan System offers a modular fracture body – providing press fit application in managing comminuted proximal humerus fracture by hemiarthroplasty.
"The reduced size fracture body makes it much easier to reduce the tuberosities to themselves. Also, the modularity of the different body heights enables me to obtain correct humeral head height to the glenoid after I have a tight fit of the stem in the proximal humerus. The prosthesis allows for a nice reduction, and the postoperative x-rays look very anatomic," Geissler said.
