Lima Corporate Announces the first implantation of SMR Axioma® TT Metal Back
Villanova di San Daniele, September 25 - We are proud today to announce the first implantation of SMR Axioma® TT Metal Back. This glenoid system, which can be used in anatomical and reverse configuration, is used in the treatment of the most challenging glenoid replacements.
It has been implanted in the UK by Prof. Ian Trail, M.D., senior full time consultant in hand and upper limb surgery at Wrightington Hospital.
The SMR Shoulder System is the first modular shoulder system platform and was introduced in 2002. This platform simplifies the conversion of a primary total shoulder or hemi, to a reverse shoulder, without the need of removing a stem or a well-fixed metal back glenoid implant. The system offers fully interchangeable components, which allow all primary, reverse, and fracture humeral bodies to be used with either the press-fit or cemented stems. This flexibility provides surgeons with minimally invasive intraoperative options and the ability to offer continued care for the lifetime of the patient.
The SMR Axioma® TT Metal Back greatly expands our shoulder portfolio and provides additional options for patients who have exhausted other treatments.
We look forward to the continued success and growth in the shoulder replacement market, providing innovative solutions for the most challenges surgeries to health care professionals and patients.
