Stryker announced the commercial launch of its Trident II Acetabular System at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons annual meeting in New Orleans.

Trident II combines Stryker’s AMagine additive manufactured Tritanium in-growth technology and a SOMA-verification process with Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery. The implant can be used in both manual total hip replacements and those performed with the Mako system.

The design of the acetabular system features a slim wall that allows for large femoral head size options and poly thickness to increase range of motion, joint stability and lower the risk of dislocation. It is also designed to replicate the complex, highly porous characteristics of cancellous bone to promote long-term biologic fixation.

Trident II shells also keep Stryker’s Innerchange locking mechanism that gives surgeons intraoperative flexibility and the ability to choose from different bearing options like modular dual mobility, X3 precisely engineered polyethylene or Trident constrained liners.
