Univers Apex OptiFit™ Total Shoulder System

With anatomic restoration of the humerus and glenoid, soft-tissue balancing of the rotator cuff is more accurate, allowing for improved functional outcome. Therefore, the Univers Apex OptiFit humeral component was designed to account for common anatomical variations of the proximal humerus and allow the surgeon to adapt the humeral stem and articular surface to the position that best represents the patient’s normal anatomy. Variable adjustments with respect to the inclination angle, version, and head offset can be made intraoperatively with the implant in the humeral canal.

The midrange stem length in combination with the titanium plasma spray optimizes stability and bone preservation1, while the rectangular stem body and removable trunnion optimize revisability. In addition, strategically incorporated suture holes allow for unique subscapularis repair options.
