With 1.6 million stems1 provided for patients worldwide and thirty years of clinical heritage, the CORAIL® Total Hip System now has the most extensive experience with a hydroxyapatite (HA) coated stem. Combining basic design features including shape, surface finish and extensive hydroxyapatite coating, with a simple compaction broach-only surgical technique, the CORAIL Total Hip System has demonstrated reproducible results and long-term biomechanical joint restoration.

|Collared Stem Option||Collared stems are available in both standard and coxa vara offset designed to control subsidence and add rotational stability.1|
|Stepped Geometry||The Stepped Geometry of the CORAIL Stem is designed to minimize shear forces and maximize compression loading in host cancellous bone.|
|Multiple Offset Options||The CORAIL Stem offers standard and high offset options which can enable femoral offset restoration and soft tissue tensioning. The CORAIL Stem also offers a coxa vara neck option which provides an additional option for varus neck angled patients.|
|Compaction Broaching||The CORAIL Stem utilizes compaction broaching which preserves the blood supply to promote healing and growth of bone around the implant. This technique has shown 96.3% survivorship of the stem at 25 years.2|
