San Daniele del Friuli, Udine, Italy – 15th May 2017 – Lima Corporate is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the SMR shoulder modular system, by launching the SMR Bone Graft Instruments and Lima Personalized Surgical Instruments (LPSI). This anniversary positions Lima as the pioneer in modularity applied to shoulder replacement. The SMR is the first shoulder platform with 15 years of clinical follow up, demonstrated by the several different studies. The innovation and the versatility of the system are now complemented by the SMR Bone Graft Instruments and LPSI Shoulder guides combined with the preoperative planning software.

The SMR Modular Shoulder System is on the market since 2002 and has been developed with the support of several shoulder surgeons, led by Prof. Mario Randelli, from Humanitas Clinical Institute in Milan (Italy). The aim of the SMR system is to provide to surgeons a complete platform, where the modularity of the system allows intraoperative versatility and a simple conversion from anatomic to reverse, without removing the humeral stem and the Metal Back glenoid.

The SMR Bone Graft Instruments are used in combination with the SMR TT Metal Back. These innovative instruments combined with Lima Corporate’s proprietary Trabecular Titanium of the TT Metal Back, allow surgeons to address a great variety of clinical cases.

“I decided to start using the Lima SMR due to the advantages provided by the modularity of the system. I appreciate the innovative solutions developed by the Company to assist us on our daily practice, such as the Trabecular Titanium”, said Dr. Kevin Setter from SUNY Upstate Medical University Syracuse (US).

The LPSI Shoulder guides and its preoperative planning software assist in planning the intraoperative positioning of the LPSI guide, finding the best position for the glenoid implants of the SMR Anatomic and Reverse shoulder system.

“Since many years Lima is focusing on innovation with the idea to be a pioneer on orthopedic applications. We are very proud to celebrate the 15 years of clinical history of our SMR System: the first shoulder modular platform and the only one with a so long follow up. Lima is continuing growing in the extremities market and developing solutions to support our customers on their always more challenging practice”, said Mr. Luigi Ferrari, Lima Corporate CEO.

SMR System is performing extremely well in different Countries around Europe, Asia Pacific and Americas, and with over 90.000 implants to date.

“The SMR System is like a friend who supports you on dealing the shoulder surgery with calm on standard situation and sort out brilliantly the complex situations”, said Dr. Alessandro Castagna from Humanitas Clinical Institute in Milan (Italy).
