WRIGHT MEDICAL HIP REPLACEMENT AND RESURFACING SYSTEMS
Wright Medical Group is an orthopedic company that specialized in joint replacement and resurfacing devices. In 2013, their OrthoRecon division was sold to MicroPort Orthopedics, Inc., who continued to manufacture the hip components.
Wright Medical Conserve
The Wright Medical Conserve Acetabular Hip and Wright Medical Conserve Hip Resurfacing Systems are part of a class of large-diameter, metal-on-metal (cobalt-chromium) monoblock hip resurfacing and replacement devices. The Conserve is a metal-on-metal hip, meaning that the femoral head and the acetabular cup lining are both made of a cobalt-chromium alloy, produced in different sizes to fit the needs of the particular patient.
Wright Medical Lineage and Dynasty
Wright Medical’s Lineage and Dynasty replacement devices are available in several variations that utilize a variety of femoral head and acetabular cup materials: ceramic-on-ceramic, metal-on-polyethylene, ceramic-on-metal, and metal-on-metal. The metal-on-metal versions are made out of cobalt and chromium.
Wright Medical Profemur Z
The modular Profemur Z Titanium Plasma Sprayed hip stem is an uncemented distal femoral implant designed to couple with Wright Medical Technology’s modular necks. The modular neck is the portion of the implant that fits onto the femoral stem so that the head can be attached to this portion of the implant that fits into the thigh bone (femur) to anchor the prosthesis.
