  • PINNACLE® Acetabular Cup System

    Introduced in 2000, the PINNACLE® Acetabular Cup System is one of the most widely used and clinically successful modular acetabular cup systems for hip replacement. In fact, the PINNACLE Cup System has been provided for more than one million patients.

    Clinical Data

    With a wide range of acetabular cup options, biological and mechanical fixation alternatives and advanced bearing technologies, the PINNACLE Cup System allows surgeons the flexibility to choose intraoperatively from among the most advanced technologies available – ceramic-on-polyethylene, metal-on-polyethylene, and ceramic-on-ceramic bearing surfaces – depending on their patients' individual needs.

    According to the National Joint Registry for England and Wales (UK NJR) 2012 Annual Report, approximately 97 percent of PINNACLE Cup Systems, in combination with CORAIL® Hip System Stems, were still in place five years after they were implanted.1

    Also according to the UK NJR 2012 Annual Report, reported survivorship rates of PINNACLE Cup System option, with the CORAIL Hip System Stem, were2:

    • Cementless ceramic-on-poly at five years: Approximately 98.6%
    • Cementless metal-on-poly at seven years: Approximately 98%

    Commitment to Innovation
    DePuy continues to advance bearing technology, design and materials within the PINNACLE Acetabular Cup System. In 2010, DePuy obtained Pre-Market Approval (PMA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to offer a newly developed bearing surface within the PINNACLE System – the CERAMAX® Ceramic-on-Ceramic – and in 2013, DePuy received PMA Supplement Approval from the FDA for the DePuy CERAMAX® Total Hip System with BIOLOX® delta Ceramic-on-Ceramic 36MM Large Femoral Head.

  • Features & Benefits

    A global leader in devices for joint replacement and trauma, DePuy worked with experienced orthopaedic surgeons, and leaders in the biomedical field to design and develop the PINNACLE® Acetabular Cup System.

    The PINNACLE Cup System is designed with a wide range of bearing technologies. These modular solutions offer surgeons options, allowing them to meet the individual needs of each patient and his or her lifestyle.1

     

    Advanced Modularity
    The proprietary Variable Interface Prosthesis (VIP) taper technology contributes to the PINNACLE System's advanced modularity by supporting both polyethylene liners and hard bearing inserts. VIP taper technology also enables macro- and micro-stability by functioning as a supporting and locking mechanism.

    Advanced Tribology
    The science behind DePuy's hip bearing surfaces – advanced tribology, or the study of friction and wear – allows for improved wear resistance.

    Advanced Materials
    The materials used in the PINNACLE Acetabular Cup System offer mechanical integrity, wear resistance and oxidative stability. DePuy's advanced modularity and range of solutions allow surgeons to match the right components to each patient’s needs. This is a consideration more important than ever, considering today's patients are demanding far more from implants than patients from previous generations.
