Saturn Features

  • Implants manufactured from high carbon ‘as cast’ cobalt chrome alloy with clinical history as a hip bearing of over 40 years.
  • Articulating surfaces are coated with ortholith®, a diamond like carbon, for hardness and lubricity.
  • Specifications of surface roundness and diameter mismatch are aligned with the latest manufacturing technology.
  • Cups are hemispherical - ensuring correct seating on impaction, coated with a titanium plasma spray and a hydroxyapatite layer for cementless implantation, thereby eliminating chromium contact with bone (which would inhibit further on-growth) when the HA is inevitably eventually resorbed.
  • Saturn beads are uniformly spaced using a unique casting technology ensuring optimal bone interlock and reproducibility from one implant to the next. (unlike earlier versions where the beaded bone integrating surface had beads that were randomly spaced)
  • Saturn is manufactured in a comprehensive range of sizes and options including both cemented and cementless femoral components, a dysplasia cup option (in case of a deficient acetabulum) and a range of modular heads (should resurfacing not be indicated and for the rare occasion that a revision of a resurfacing becomes necessary).
  • Saturn instrumentation is designed to simplify use as we continually strive to develop new and better solutions with surgeons as required.
