New Pyrocarbon Radial Head Implant

A pyrocarbon head is now available for the modular radial head system from Ascension Orthopedics. Previous studies have shown Pyrocarbon to be the best available material to articulate against bone. Coupled with a titanium stem, this is perhaps the best combination yet possible. Osteotec now supply the radial head together with the RadFx radial head fixation system. This allows the surgeon confidence to know he has the tools to rebuild or replace the head available in the same instrument set.
