Sirius Cemented Femoral Hip Stem

A modern approach to a trusted design

The Sirius femoral stem is a short cemented stem with a proven taper-slip philosophy for use in both primary and revision hip arthroplasty. 1,2 This stem design offers a reproducible hip solution with optimal cement-bone interface when combined with the well documented Modern Cementing Technique. 3-10
  • Double taper is designed to load the cement mantle, reducing stress shielding and proximal bone loss11
  • Fully polished surface helps to preserve the cement mantle under repeated loading11
  • Forged CoCrMo provides a high fatigue resistance  superior to that of Stainless Steel (HNSS)12,13
  • Five horizontal offsets with a choice of multiple body geometries designed to fit a broad range of patient anatomies and restore joint biomechanics and stability
  • Short stem, 100 to 130mm in length, designed in consideration of small stature patients and the Asian population (narrow isthmus and pronounced bow)
  • Optimised Type 1 taper increases ROM 14-16
  • Streamlined instrumentation designed to reduce hospital inventory and cost
  • For use with Biomet’s comprehensive cement products designed to support the Modern Cementing Technique
