This offers several advantages:
REDUCED RISK OF OVERSTUFFING
A metal glenoid liner can have a reduced thickness compared to a conventional polyethylene glenoid liner, thus minimizing overstuffing complication in the replaced shoulder.
LIGHTWEIGHT PROSTHETIC COMPONENTS
More lightweight prosthetic components avoiding cobalt-chromium and stainless steel alloys from the prosthetic materials in favour of titanium alloy and UHMWPE.
HYPOALLERGENIC PROSTHETIC COMPONENTS
Hypoallergenic prosthetic components without cobalt, nickel, chromium, avoiding cobalt-chromium and stainless steel alloys from prosthetic materials.
