Aesculap Implant Systems will launch its Alternative Surface (AS) technology, whichhas already seen over 1,200 implantations worldwide, at the 2009 AAOS. The innovative Zirconium Nitride coating for knee implants has been shown to almost eliminate metal ion release while also reducing polyethylene wear by up to 60%. Study data shows that patients with a metal sensitivity do not exhibit a reaction to metal samples treated with the AS Coating.
