The LCU Hip System follows the concept of a straight stem with tapered lateral shoulder. The profile is straight with a rectangular cross-section.
Two offset types allow for adaption to the patient’s anatomy 2:
The stability of the implant is additionally enhanced by the characteristic metaphyseal V-shape, while the rectangular cross-section neutralizes torsional forces. 5, 8

The 12/14 taper is designed for the use of modular LINK prosthesis heads made of ceramic or metal with various lengths and diameters.
Furthermore, the highly polished neck region reduces abrasion in the event of unintentional contact with the acetabular cup.9
