Providing simple solutions to complex disorders for revision and infection remedies
The REMEDY SHOULDER SPACER is part of the treatment foreseen in a two-stage procedure performed in the event of permanent prosthesis infection. The REMEDY® Shoulder Spacer implant is intended for temporary use only (180 days or less). It allows basic joint mobility and releases antibiotics into the joint area to protect the implant from bacterial colonization. A second surgery will be required at a later date to remove the REMEDY® Shoulder Spacer and replace it with a permanent shoulder joint implant.
