Cementless hip stem based on design principles by Prof. L. Spotorno

The CTW™-S EPICAL™ stem is a hip implant for cementless proximal fixation using the Press-Fit principle. Prof. Dr. L. Sportono’s tapered, wedge-shaped stem design has proven its worth over many years; Merete’s patented osseopromotive EPICAL™ surface gives it additional grip within bone.
