Smith and Nephew recently introduced its POLARCUP Dual Hip Mobility System. According to a company press release, the POLARCUP system is designed to address the challenges of treating patients in both primary and revision cases who are susceptible to dislocation and need enhanced stability. It allows surgeons to implant a smaller, constrained femoral component within a larger, anatomically sized polyethylene head, providing greater stability by increasing range of motion and jump distance.

“This stability philosophy is widely used in the European market where surgeons have extensive experience with dual mobility in elderly and less active patients,” John Soto, senior vice president for Smith and Nephew’s global hip franchise, stated in the release.
