This newly cleared baseplate boasts a simplified circular design at three augment heights (3 mm, 5 mm and 7 mm buildup), allowing for augment placement in any orientation to accommodate various unique bone anatomies. Its circular design also allows bone ingrowth into the rim of the baseplate for optimal fixation.
The Comprehensive Augmented Baseplate is a component of the Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder System, a next-generation reverse shoulder prosthesis engineered to offer high-quality intraoperative flexibility and clinically proven technologies. The system aims to minimize the potential challenges of removing well-fixed humeral stems by allowing conversion to a reverse shoulder using any of the existing Comprehensive stems. Additionally, the Comprehensive Augmented Baseplate leverages Mayo Clinic’s patented methodology for the optimization of shoulder arthroplasty components developed by Sperling at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., to provide relevant sizing for a conservative approach to bone removal in order to preserve bone stock if a future revision procedure is necessary.
