AL-2 MP-1 (Polyimide) Acetabular Liner

2015-07-22 11:38:23 | BioPortfolio


M.M.A.TECH Ltd. product is an Acetabular Liner Family produced of an advanced polyimide - MP-1™.

M.M.A.TECH Ltd. produces the Liners according to EN ISO 13485:2012 approved manufacturing process and supplies them to the customer.

The aim of this study is to evaluate, in the frame of PMCF, the safety and performance of using AL-X MP1 Polyimide Acetabular liners in Total Hip Replacement surgery by clinical following up of patients for a period of 2 years .


The procedure involves removal of the diseased parts of the joint, that is the damaged cartilage and adjacent bone, and replacing them with artificial parts which closely resemble in structure and/or function the removed native parts.

The artificial parts fit onto the reshaped bone and are fixed either with bone cement (e.g., polymethylmethacrylate) and press fit of the part(cemented), or by self-anchorage with bone ingrowth to its porous surface(cementless).

The design of the artificial parts may include a stem, a keel or pegs, which fit onto the medullary canal of the bone or into a hole pre-prepared in the bone. An artificial part may fit loosely and be fixed with bone cement, press-fit for self- anchorage or include extendible anchors which are retracted upon placement and extended thereafter so as to secure the implant in place.

Following fixation of the components, the joint is reduced and the soft tissue tension is appropriately checked to reassure stability of the joint.

The MP-1™ acetabular liner will be tapper locked in acetabular metal shells to resurface the acetabular socket in cementless total hip replacement.

MMaTech Ltd will manufacture the liners to perfectly fit into the external metallic shell of the following sizes (mm):

A type of porcelain used in dental restorations, either jacket crowns or inlays, artificial teeth, or metal-ceramic crowns. It is essentially a mixture of particles of feldspar and quartz, the feldspar melting first and providing a glass matrix for the quartz. Dental porcelain is produced by mixing ceramic powder (a mixture of quartz, kaolin, pigments, opacifiers, a suitable flux, and other substances) with distilled water. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)

A polymer obtained by reacting polyacrylic acid with a special anion-leachable glass (alumino-silicate). The resulting cement is more durable and tougher than others in that the materials comprising the polymer backbone do not leach out.
