Over 50,000 successful surgeries worldwide. Why take a chance with anything else?
With its patented 7-layer technology, the Advanced Surface (AS) knee offers enhanced protection against the top prostheses-related reasons for implant failure and revision.
With approximately 20% of all TKA patients reporting dissatisfaction with their knee replacement, now is the perfect time to learn more about our advanced surface knee and its benefits.
The Advanced Surface Technology provides:
Reduced potential for metal ion release
AS technology, with its unique 7-layer ceramic coating on all Aesculap Primary and Revision knee implants, provides complete protection from Cobalt, Chromium and Nickel ions.
Substantial wear reduction & enhanced performance
A knee implant with AS technology demonstrates substantial reduction in wear, when compared to a CoCr prosthesis. This technology, in combination with Aesculap knee systems with beta sterilised polyethylene (PE), yields excellent performance.
Unmatched surface hardness & mechanical integrity
The unique 7-layer AS technology supports:
- Superior hardness.
- Improved scratch resistance.
- Good wettability for better articulation between bearing surfaces.
- Higher resistance to third particle wear.
- Hard Ceramic outer layer and soft Cobalt Chrome substrate prevents high risk of coating delamination.
