GLOBAL ICON™ Stemless Shoulder System
The GLOBAL ICON™ Stemless Shoulder System is indicated for use as a Total Shoulder Arthroplasty. It is designed to achieve peripheral fixation where the bone quality and density has been demonstrated to be superior to central bone.1,2
Features & Benefits
- Designed to provide rigid metaphyseal fixation, despite the absence of a traditional stemmed component
- Designed to achieve peripheral fixation where the bone quality and density has been demonstrated to be superior to central bone.1,2
Anatomically-designed humeral head sizes and a broad range of peripherally-fixated Anchor Plate components
- Natural epiphyseal structure, or best-fit circle reconstruction, can be created to reestablish the patient’s inclination, offset and retroversion.
- Designed to enhance soft tissue balancing and stability4
Simplified surgical procedure and streamlined instrumentation
- Designed to potentially improve operating room efficiency through its simplified surgical procedure
- 73% fewer surgical steps3
- 56% fewer instrument passes compared to a traditional stemmed shoulder prosthesis3
Combination of a bone-conserving device with streamlined instrumentation
- Designed to be bone-preserving, removing an average of 88% less bone than a traditional stemmed device5
- The use of a bone-conserving device, in concert with streamlined instrumentation, combines to potentially increase surgical efficiency and reduce blood loss on a primary procedure.
