Date:2/25/2009

ntages of Trabecular Metal monoblock implants over traditional metal implants," continued Dr. Blanchard.

Trabecular Metal material is a structural biomaterial whose cellular architecture resembles bone and approximates its physical and mechanical properties more closely than other prosthetic materials. The unique, highly porous trabecular configuration is conducive to more normal bone formation and bone in-growth. Trabecular Metal implants are fabricated using elemental tantalum metal and a patented vapor deposition technique that creates a metallic strut configuration resembling cancellous bone with nano-textured surface features. Trabecular Metal Technology is exclusive to Zimmer. Zimmer will showcase an interactive Trabecular Metal Technology Experience at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeon's 2009 Annual Meeting.
