Triathlon Tritanium

Cementless total knee system

Triathlon Tritanium is the latest evolution in the Triathlon knee portfolio. Triathlon Tritanium combines the kinematics of Triathlon with the latest in highly porous biologic fixation technology for a knee system like no other. The innovation of Tritanium’s tibial baseplate and metal-backed patella components are enabled by Stryker’s proprietary AMagine Additive Manufacturing technology and SOMA-designed.

Cementless. Redefined.

Cementless TKA is growing in popularity and is a fast-growing trend.1 Recent studies support that cementless TKA achieves excellent results,2-4 including a 2014 study showing 97.1% survivorship at up to 20 years without aseptic loosening.5 Cementless TKA offers surgeons, patients and hospitals the following potential benefits:

  • Biologic fixation: Cementless TKA offers an alternative to bone cement, which involves mechanical fixation.

  • Cement & mixing device costs: Given costs associated with cemented TKA, including bone cement and a mixing device, there may be cost savings available for the hospital when using Tritanium cementless technology.

  • OR efficiency: The modern economics of total joint arthroplasty and available health care resources also contribute to a renewed interest in cementless TKA through the potential for increased operating room efficiency. 

  • Successes in THA: Cementless THA has been a clinically successful procedure5 and the orthopaedic community is now looking to achieve these results in TKA.
