Imagined in the mid 70s in St Etienne (France) by Professor Bousquet, the dual mobility acetabular cup concept has now reached maturity and brings a coherent solution to the intra-prosthetic dislocation issue. Indicated for the primary degenerative osteoarthritis at the patient of more than 70 years, for the neck fractures of the active person, for cases of important articular laxity, for the patients with irrational behavior, and for the revisions of primary TKAs, the dual mobility concept associates important intra-articular stability and controlled wear of the polyethylene liner. Capitole "U" for "Universal" CAPITOLE "U" is a dual mobility acetabular cup which enables intra-operative adaptation of its fixation to the osseous situation. The Capitole "U" can be used in primary indications without appendix of complementary fixation, or in revision indications with complementary obturator hook and/or fixations plates on the acetabular roof or on the posterior wall of the acetabulum. primary indication : immediate stability through equatorial rimm press-fit, porous titanium and hydroxyapatite coatings revision indication : up to 5 fixation plates and/or an obturator hole hook can be inserted on the rim of the cup to complement immediate fixation number of fixation plates increasing with cup size: 2 to 5 available range from diameter 48 to 66mm in 2mm increments PEXEL polyethylene liners available for all sizes in 22.2 or 28mm inner diameter. 28 mm Ceramic sandwich option on special request.
