  • Metha Short Hip Stem: The Metha Short Hip Stem is designed to achieve true metaphyseal anchoring for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA). The combination of a bone conserving design and anatomic accuracy have proven to meet the needs of both patient and surgeon.

The system provides high implant stability, increased implant surface and an easy surgical technique.
  • Vitelene Liner: Vitelene is a vitamin E blended, highly crosslinked polyethylene acetabular cup liner for use with the Plasmafit Pro cup. It is formulated with antioxidant protection that provides excellent wear and oxidation resistance and balanced mechanical properties. Vitelene provides benefits versus conventional polyethylene or cross-linked polyethylene liners.
