Balanced By Design
LimaCorporate is a true pioneer in the modularity field: SMR has been the first to address multiple indications of shoulder replacement with a unique modular system, and its options keeps evolving towards the future, extending indications and improving outcomes.
SMR can provide multiple fixation strategies –cement, press-fit, TT bone ingrowth both on humerus and on glenoid side and they are all proved to be reliable.
Proven results make SMR having one of the widest clinical heritage among all the shoulder replacements worldwide.
Modularity is the enabling feature for SMR, meaning it is able to support any type of anatomic shoulder arthroplasty, from bone sparing elective to trauma [2-8]. SMR was awarded with a 10A ODEP rating when coupled with cemented glenoid .
 10A ODEP Rating for SMR Cemented Glenoid / Uncemented Humeral Stem. Latest ODEP Ratings can be found at www.odep.org.uk

SMR Anatomic All of the SMR stems can be combined with metaphyseal components, which are available in elective and trauma versions. The adaptor connecting the humeral head is available in two heights and four eccentricities . SMR is fully dialable and aims to replicate a patients’ anatomy. On the Glenoid side, three main options are available: all poly 3-pegs cemented glenoid, SMR TT Hybrid Glenoid or Metal Back coupled with poly liner.
