A Minimally Invasive Option for Shoulder Replacement
COMPLETE SHOULDER RESTORATION WITH THE CATALYST CSR™ TOTAL SHOULDER SYSTEM
Finally, A Total Shoulder System That:
- Restores the natural shape of your shoulder
- Preserves your strongest bone
- Uses a unique, less invasive technique
- Simplifies procedure to facilitate rapid recovery
DESIGNED TO GET YOU BACK TO THE ACTIVITIES YOU LOVE AND RESTORE THE QUALITY OF LIFE YOU DESERVE
The Catalyst CSR system has a non-spherical design to properly mimic the three-dimensional shape of the normal human shoulder. Research has shown that shoulder implants designed this way move more like a normal shoulder than traditional spherical shoulder implants.(1)
Bone PreservingTraditional shoulder implants require removal of the top of your humerus so a “stem” can be inserted down into the bone canal. By contrast, the Catalyst CSR system avoids the long metal stem and preserves more of your strong, healthy bone. This may help to reduce operating room time, exposure to anesthesia and blood loss.(2)
Tissue SparingSoft tissue is spared with a unique, less invasive surgical technique due to the Catalyst CSR system’s patented instrumentation and system design.
Simplified Procedure Facilitates Rapid RecoveryWith the Catalyst CSR system, early data has shown a shorter average hospital length of stay, smaller readmission rate, and higher percentage of patients being discharged home instead of to a skilled nursing facility or inpatient rehab compared to published values for total shoulder arthroplasties.(3) This may lead to a quicker return to normal lifestyle and everyday activities.
