Royal Hip spacer® Hip is a temporary implant specially dedicated to the replacement of infected hip prosthesis during “two-stage” surgical procedures. The spacer is composed of gentamicin-loaded bone cement reinforced with a stainless-steel endoskeleton. The local antibiotic release into the surrounding tissues contributes to the infection treatment. Its shape, similar to a Monobloc hip prosthesis, allows maintenance of the joint space.
The Royal Hip spacer® may be inserted by all surgical approaches.
In case of spacer instability, a proximal cementation can be performed.
Patient is rapidly able to ambulate with partial weight-bearing (two crutches are necessary to move)
Muscular work is advised between the “two-stage” to avoid the amyotrophic.
