First stem specifically designed for AMIS
The AMIStem has been developed to facilitate broaching and stem insertion when utilising the AMIS approach without compromising implant stability. Based on the clinical experience of straight, rectangular, cementless hip stems,[1,2,3,4] the AMIStem incorporates features which simplify the AMIS approach.
10 STANDARD sizes, from 0 to 9, with 135° neck-shaft angle
8 LATERALIZED sizes, from 1 to 8, with 127° neck-shaft angle
9 STANDARD sizes, from 0 to 8, with 135° neck-shaft angle
9 LATERALIZED sizes, from 0 to 8, with 127° neck-shaft angle
The mirror polished surface treatment minimises soft tissue damage and liner wear, making the AMIStem-H suitable for double mobility liners.
Increasing size by size to restore anatomy.
The triple tapered design provides good axial and rotational stability with optimal fixation with bone. [5,7]
The rectangular cross-section facilitates effective stability but also promotes the preservation of bone vascularisation, since the diaphysis is not completely filled. [2,3,4]
The horizontal and vertical macrostructures increase stability and enhance the contact surface area by 10-15%. 
The double tapered distal tip reduces the risk of stress peak in the diaphysis.
AMIStem-H and AMIStem-H Collared are made of Titanium- Niobium alloy in accordance with ISO 5832-11. Their surface presents a 80 μm thick Hydroxyapatite (HA) coating after a superficial sand-blasting of 4 to 7 μm roughness.
The HA coating has chemical characteristics similar to that of the human bone which stimulates the bony ongrowth. [4, 9, 10, 11, 12]
The mirror polished surface does not cause cracks or gaps in the cement mantle. 
AMIStem-C is made of high nitrogen stainless steel, in accordance with ISO 5832-9 and has a mirror polished surface.
The anterior approach, strengthened by several years of clinical experience, is the only technique which follows a path both intermuscular and internervous and therefore reduces considerably the risk of damaging periarticular structures such as muscles, tendons, vessels and nerves.Medacta International is the world leader for educating and supporting surgeons in their pursuit of Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery (AMIS).
Reference Centers, located throughout the world, provide the necessary AMIS educational experience and Medacta offers continuous support for surgeons, as well as constantly improving and developing the industries most specialised instrumentation platform.Using AMIStem you can enter Medacta International’s world of AMIS.
Thanks to its unique design, AMIStem is the logical femoral stem for the AMIS approach:
