Mpact System is a comprehensive hemispherical cup platform featuring different shell and liner designs and materials allowing for efficiently treating the majority of the clinical cases from primary to revision surgeries, according to patients’ needs.
The Mpact system makes use of different advanced materials and manufacturing technologies.
Both MectaGrip and 3D Metal allow for designing and manufacturing implants featuring a high friction coefficient, increasing grip at the bone interface, thereby obtaining a superior primary stability. Moreover, the porous structure parameters in line with the commonly accepted parameters[2,5] create a favorable environment for the bone.[6,7,8,9] The efficient connection with the bone has been validated by means of an animal study in young sheep.

MectaGrip is a porous coating treatment applied to the Mpact shells, consisting of a layer of commercially pure titanium deposited through a special Vacuum Plasma Spray technique (VPS). Titanium porous coating allows for an enhanced biocompatibility, thanks to the pure titanium composition and optimized porosity.
3D Metal is an advanced biomaterial structure that is finely engineered for the bone. It is made of Titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V), and it is obtained by means of 3D printing technology, an innovative one-step layer-by-layer additive manufacturing process (not a coating).
This advanced technology allows for designing different engineered 3D net structures starting from a CAD model in a precise, predictable and reproducible manner. By means of a single technology it is possible to efficiently face most clinical cases, from standard primary to complex revision surgeries.
The MULTI-HOLE SHELLS allow for the use of cancellous bone screws in 13 to 17 locations (size dependent) on the dome and equatorial region.
The RIM-HOLE SHELL allows for the use of cancellous and cortical bone screws.
The Clipping system for the polyethylene liners is placed outside the equatorial weight-bearing area in the thickest region of the liner.
This design reduces stresses at the liner/shell interface and minimizes the risk of the liner rim fracture in case of impingement.
Therefore, the match between the anti-rotation tabs in the liner and the indentations on the shell limits rotational micro-movements and potential backside wear.[2,3]
18° taper angle has been demonstrated to have a lower malseating rate if compared to different ceramic taper angle versions.[3,4] This tapered surface has been successfully adopted for all Medacta cups since 2005.
The SensiTiN DM Converter tapered surface shows the same geometrical characteristics as the clinically successful Medacta ceramic liner. Micro-threads are also present on the tapered surface to increase stability of the device.
