The Turon™ is the first total shoulder system to incorporate the IMIN™ neck technology; a patented clocking feature which provides the ability to dial in the correct neck position to restore individual patient anatomy with increased precision compared to a fixed neck only design, thus providing optimum joint stability and range of motion, without compromising implant fixation.
No two patients are alike. A challenge in shoulder arthroplasty is restoring the patient's unique shoulder joint anatomy. This can be achieved through a combination of the implant sizing options, and the ability to adjust the neck position and humeral head tilt. Unfortunately, conventional fixed neck angle shoulder prosthetic designs do not offer this capability.
The modular humeral necks feature a double Morse taper design and a patented clocking feature to dial in the correct neck position and humeral head tilt to adjust to varying patient humeral neck anatomies. This, combined with neutral and eccentric humeral head sizing options, helps achieve the best implant fit with the optimal neck position and offset.
Joint replacement is indicated for patients suffering from disability due to:
• noninflammatory degenerative joint disease including osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis of the natural humeral head and/or glenoid;
• rheumatoid arthritis;
• correction of functional deformity;
• humeral fracture.
This device may also be indicated in the salvage of previously failed surgical attempts. The glenoid components are indicated for cemented use only.
