THE CORAIL-PINNACLE HIP PROSTHESIS

De Corail-Pinnacle heupprotheseThe hip prosthesis consists of 4 major components. A titanium stem (Corail) and titanium bowl (Pinnacle) are placed in the upper leg and pelvic bone, respectively. Both components have been manufactured and distributed for decades by DepuySynthes, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

These components grow into the bone, and are largely incorporated into the body over a period of 8-12 weeks. If the components show perfect ingrowth into the bone after one year, we know that the prosthesis will still function perfectly after a period of 15 to 20 years in 95% of the patients.

A ceramic ball is applied to the stem, which articulates with a polyethylene or a ceramic liner (i.e. this is a bowl that is placed in the titanium bowl). Any wear of a prosthesis will mainly take place at the level of this liner. Factors such as age and weight will obviously have an influence on this.

Prof. Dr. Corten has selected this prosthesis geselecteerd voor zijn patiënten op basis van literatuurgegevens en gegevens van de nationale implantaatregisters. After 10-30 years of follow-up , this prosthesis stands out as one of the prostheses with the best results. Prof. Dr. Corten has meanwhile implanted thousands of these Corail Pinnacle implants

ESY CONCEPT

Standardisation reduces the chance of complications

The standardisation of each step of the procedure and the use of specially developed instruments reduces the risk of complications and muscle damage.

ANAESTHESIA

Smaller anaesthetic risk and promotion of recovery

In combination with the EDA procedure, this high-quality loco-regional anaesthesia, which was developed together with our colleagues in the anaesthesia department, provides maximum pain relief with minimal anaesthetic risk and a quick recovery.

GRIPPER

Minimal tissue damage during EDA surgery

This invention of Prof. Dr. Corten gives the surgeon a perfect view of the operating area, causes less stress during the operation, and results in no tissue damage to the patient. This significantly reduces the risk of complications.
