10-Year Study Highlights Trabecular Metal Technology's Clinical Success Over Traditional Metal Implants

WARSAW, Ind., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZMH; SWX: ZMH), a leader in the orthopaedic industry, today announced that data from an independent 10-year Trabecular Metal(TM) Technology comparative clinical study demonstrates the osteoconductive properties of Zimmer's Trabecular Metal Technology.

Findings indicate that Trabecular Metal monoblock implants result in a marked reduction in metallic and polyethylene debris and maximize the area available for bone in-growth. Further, the researchers observed a zero revision rate for aseptic loosening throughout the duration of the study and no incidence of implant migration and no radiographic evidence of gross polyethylene wear as measured digitally with (EBRA) Ein-Bild-Rontgen-Analyse.
