A Better Acetabular Solution from StelKast ... Naturally

MCMURRAY, Pa., April 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- StelKast is proud to announce the recent FDA 510(k) clearance of their new EXp™ Acetabular Liners. EXp™, a blend of antioxidant and highly cross-linked polyethylene technology was developed with the consulting support of Steven Kurtz, Ph.D. and Exponent, Inc. (Philadelphia, PA). StelKast has also received 510(k) clearance for large diameter cobalt-chrome femoral heads and Biolox® delta femoral heads.


Mr. Peter Stephans, Chairman & CEO, said in a statement, "EXp™ polyethylene technology represents an optimal blend of UHMWPE, the antioxidant vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol), and cross-linking for long-term oxidative stability, preservation of mechanical properties and performance. Unlike other highly cross-linked materials, EXp™ polyethylene requires no thermal processing or infusion of antioxidants to stabilize the material. The combination of EXp™ Acetabular Liners and large diameter heads promotes joint stability.

"StelKast is excited to be the first US orthopedic company to provide a highly crosslinked vitamin E blended acetabular system offering superior oxidation resistance. The introduction of EXp™ polyethylene is just another example of StelKast's commitment to place emerging technology and high quality implants in surgeon's hands through cost effective solutions."

Full commercial launch of the EXp™ Acetabular System is planned for July 2011. For inquiries, please contact your local StelKast representative or Customer Service at 888-273-1583.
