Accolade II
Femoral Hip Stem

Morphometric wedge femoral stem, an evolution of your conventional tapered wedge stem that is SOMA-designed for today’s diverse THA patient population.

Designed to fit more patients, designed to fit your approach

Accolade II’s Morphometric Wedge is designed to address modern demands with novel technology by evolving conventional tapered wedge femoral stem design with size specific medial curvature to more closely fit a broad range of bone sizes and shapes of today’s patient population.1 Accolade II has been shown to allow for enhance stability,2 decreased intraoperative femoral fractures,3 as well as survivorship and functional outcomes4,5 which may lead to satisfied patients.5,6

Clinically, Accolade II has shown significantly better overall canal fit1 than conventional tapered wedge design with five times less intraoperative fractures observed compared to conventional tapered wedges3 and less than 0.1mm subsidence pursuant to a 2-year RSA study. Additionally, Accolade II has shown 99.2% survivorship pursuant to a 3.5-year mean study.4

Key features include:

  • Unique size-specific medial curvature: Offers increasing proximal conformity to enhance primary stability.6,7
  • Enhanced proximal-distal proportions:7 Shown to mimic canal anatomy to avoid distal only engagement and achieve cortical fit.8,9
  • Optimized stem length: Enables muscle-sparing approaches such as Direct Anterior or Direct Superior without sacrificing stability.7,10
