AltrX™ was built on the proven clinical heritage of Marathon® cross-linked polyethylene. Introduced in 1998, Marathon was the first FDA-cleared cross-linked polyethylene in orthopaedics.
The Pinnacle™ Bantam Acetabular Cup System is designed for patients with small acetabular dimensions. Patients in this population include those with smaller bone structure, smaller stature and, importantly, developmental hip dysplasia (DDH). The system was designed to help the surgeon optimize cup fixation and hip stability in these patient populations and also allow a choice of bearing surface options.
