Reinforcement Cage Burch-Schneider
The reinforcement cages are developed as a stable frame for retaining polyethylene cups to bridge bony defects of the acetabulum and to restore the center of rotation. The aim is to restore and preserve the hip joint as well as its mobility and load-bearing capacity.
The Burch-Schneider reinforcement cage has a cranial and a caudal tab. The cranial tab is for the fixation into the ilium. The caudal tab of the reinforcement cage will be impacted into the ischium. Alternatively, the caudal tab can also be screwed into the ischium. Badly damaged acetabulum can be bridged using the reinforcement cage . It will then be fixed into the healthy, stable bone.
