CONTEXT
Total Knee Component with Peri-Apatite® surface treatment

Primary knee components are available with a standard surface, or with a surface treatment of Peri-Apatite® over specific areas of the implant. Components with a Peri-Apatite® coating are intended for press-fit fixation on the prepared distal femur, proximal tibia and posterior patella, as appropriate. Bone augmentation components cannot be used in press-fit applications. The characteristics specific to each device are detailed on the product label.

Stryker Howmedica Osteonics also developed PureFix™ Peri-apatite™ (PureFix™ PA); a technologically advanced hydroxyapatite coating that makes it possible to completely coat all areas of a porous in-growth surface. PureFix™ PA is applied using a proprietary low temperature aqueous precipitation process. This process allows a 20 µm thin coating of 100% pure crystalline HA to form around the perimeter of each bead from the surface to the substrate, without blocking the pores facilitating bony in-growth.
