A History of Clinical Excellence
ABOUT THE HINTERMANN SERIES SYSTEM
Prof. Beat Hintermann, Chairman of the Clinic for Orthopaedics and Traumatology at Kantonsspital Baselland in Liestal, Switzerland, developed the Hintermann Series H3® mobile bearing Total Ankle Replacement system more than 20 years ago which has realized continued clinical use and success in the global marketplace. In June 2019, the Hintermann Series H3 system received FDA PMA approval for the use of the product in the United States to replace the ankle joint in primary surgeries.
With the Hintermann Series Total Ankle Replacement System, surgeons will now have an opportunity, using a single instrument set, to offer a full solution to their patients using the H2 and H3 to perform primary (H2 and H3), revision (H2), or take-down TARs (H2 and H3).
The Hintermann Series H3 Total Ankle Replacement System, also referred to as the H3, is intended to replace the ankle joint. The device permits four degrees of freedom, providing an unconstrained tibial articulating surface and a semi-constrained talar articulating surface for anteroposterior translation, mediolateral translation, tibial rotation, and dorsi/plantar flexion movement. The Hintermann Series H3 consists of a tibial component, a talar component, and an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene mobile bearing insert (PE inlay).
