Leave Metal Behind

For the last 15 years, most hip resurfacing procedures have been performed using metal-on-metal prostheses. However, concerns about adverse reactions to metal wear debris have awakened interest in alternative materials. Synovo Preserve offers the functional performance and strength of metal-on-metal components without the risk of harmful wear debris. Because Synovo Preserve has a porous surface for bone ingrowth, cementing the femoral prosthesis is not required.

The Evolution Hip Resurfacing

Synovo Preserve uses an innovative Cross-Linked Polyethylene (PEX) material that is lightweight, low friction, extremely wear-resistant, and provides a range of motion on par with the natural hip. Synovo Preserve’s technology is redefining the standard for hip resurfacing componentry, and is giving new life and restored vitality to countless patients suffering from chronic hip pain. The high-performance implant is anatomically designed to preserve a greater range of motion and allows patients to fully return to their healthy and dynamic lifestyles.

A New Generation of Polyethylene

Synovo Preserve’s Cross-Linked Polyethylene is stronger, lighter, and more wear-resistant than conventional polyethylene. While conventional polyethylene hip implants have a failure rate nearing 40%, Synovo Preserve has no recorded incidences of bearing related failures. Furthermore, the incidence of osteolysis (bone loss) and the rate of wear with Cross-Linked Polyethylene for total hip replacement are 87% -130% less compared with conventional polyethylene. Extending the use of Cross-Linked Polyethylene to hip resurfacing has been a natural extension of this technology and the midterm results have shown excellent outcomes and survivorship.
