The DePuy C-Stem AMT Total Hip System implant features a triple taper design as a stability enhancing feature. This revolutionary design includes the standard, compressive load transferring dual tapers, coupled with a third tape. Maximal load transfer from the stem to the proximal femur is achieved through the addition of this third taper. The effects of stress shielding are also minimized. These features coupled with the Summit platform;s biomechanic features provide the polished cemented stem the patient expects.
