Revision heads

FH ORTHOPEDICS also has a line of revision heads.

During either partial (liner change) or total acetabular revision, it is advisable to replace the femoral head at a minimum. However this replacement is only feasible if the taper is in good condition. The heads in this product line can only be used with FH ORTHOPEDICS femoral stems. Before undertaking a revision procedure, please contact the sales department at FH ORTHOPEDICS to determine which generation of femoral stem has been implanted and to find out if the taper is suitable.
