What Is a Standard Offset Cup Impactor?
In hip joint replacement surgery, the hip socket is removed and replaced with a prosthetic cup, and the head or ball of the femur (thigh bone) is removed and replaced with a prosthetic ball. Standard Offset Cup Impactors are handheld, reusable devices surgeons use to implant the cup in the hip sockets during this procedure. They must be thoroughly sterilized before surgery to ensure patient safety.
