LINK® Lubinus® SP II®

Anatomical hip prosthesis with best results in swedish study

The LINK® SP II® hip prosthesis stem forms an anatomical hip prosthesis for cementable implantation with the Model Lubinus® hip acetabular cup or the IP hip acetabular cup.?

In Sweden the Lubinus® SP II® is the most frequently used implant for cemented hip joint replacement. Its ratings in the Swedish Annual Hip Report 2007* ("Swedish study") conclude
that it is also the most reliable. During the period covered by the report, in 60,949 implantations, done at various centres, a survival rate of 94.7% after 16 years, is shown for the LINK® hip prosthesis system.

The Lubinus® SP II® hip prosthesis stem also achieved very good safety data in the Swedish Hip Register of a subgroup analysis** studying failure cases for the occurrence of periprosthetic femoral fractures. In the 1,049 complications recorded between 1979 and 2000 the Model Lubinus® was markedly underrepresented in the fracture group. The risk of periprosthetic femoral fractures was evaluated as very low with the anatomical SP II® hip prosthesis system.

Anatomically adapted SPII® Prosthesis Stem with Lubinus® Acetabular Cup

SP II® Hip Prosthesis Stem


  • Centred position in the femoral canal due to the anatomically shaped stem.

  • Preserves the intramedullary bone substance

  • Uniform cement mantle in the entire stem region

  • S-shaped stem resists rotational forces

  • Large collar support achieves reintroduction of physiological forces into the femur

  • Built-in physiological anteversion in the prosthesis stem

  • Reliable implantation technique

  • Modular system allows adjustment to suit anatomical requirements

  • Two standard stem lengths, four additional stem lengths of 200 to 350 mm for revisions

  • Three femoral neck angles, one extra long femoral neck and up to four head-neck lengths for precise lateralization adjustment
