Biomet introduced the Avantage system in 1998 to address patients with high risk of dislocation. Avantage is a dual mobility acetabular system combining a proprietary anatomical cup design and a unique ultra-low wear polyethylene. Since 2005, the Avantage system has been the N°1 cementless and cemented dual mobility cup on the market1.
The Avantage double mobility cup system is an optimal solution for the treatment of patients with a high risk of dislocation or recurrent dislocation10. Its anatomic design offers joint stability11 and a large range of motion12. From primary to more complex revision and reconstruction cases, the comprehensive Avantage double mobility system addresses most surgical needs.
