Learn more about Furlong® hip system
The Furlong H-A.C prosthesis has been a world-leading replacement hip system since its inception. The prosthesis is well known for its excellent ability to gain fixation through two processes. The press fit as primary fixation and then a biological fixation through the hydroxyapatite coating. The ongoing success of the prosthesis can be seen by the 13A* ODEP (Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel) rating that accompanies the Furlong H-A.C prosthesis. The evidence really does speak for itself with results suggesting the best long-term results of cemented or uncemented femoral components used in total hip replacement.
Rectangular cross section of proximal body provides rotational stability under dynamic loading
The deliberate accurate nature of the Furlong instrumentation and surgical technique ensures precise primary mechanical fixation. The stem shape from the cone section upwards guarantees maximum proximal loading in Gruen zones 1 & 7 and 2 & 6. This allows for confident post operative weight bearing and good early bone growth.
