McMurray, PA., April 15, 2011 -
StelKast is proud to announce the recent FDA 510(k) clearance of their
new EXpTM Acetabular Liners. EXpTM, a blend of antioxidant and highly
cross-linked polyethylene technology was developed with the consulting
support of Steven Kurtz, Ph.D. and Exponent, Inc. (Philadelphia, PA).
StelKast has also received 510(k) clearance for large diameter
cobalt-chrome femoral heads and Biolox® delta femoral heads.
Peter Stephans, Chairman & CEO, said in a statement, "EXpTM
polyethylene technology represents an optimal blend of UHMWPE, the
antioxidant vitamin E (α-tocopherol), and cross-linking for long-term
oxidative stability, preservation of mechanical properties and
performance. Unlike other highly cross-linked materials, EXpTM
polyethylene requires no thermal processing or infusion of antioxidants
to stabilize the material. The combination of EXpTM Acetabular Liners and
large diameter heads promotes joint stability.
"StelKast is excited to be the first US orthopedic company to provide a highly cross-linked vitamin E blended acetabular system offering
superior oxidation resistance. The introduction of EXpTM polyethylene is
just another example of StelKast's commitment to place emerging
technology and high quality implants in surgeon's hands through cost
commercial launch of the EXpTM Acetabular System is planned for July
2011. For inquiries, please contact your local StelKast representative
