Procotyl® L Acetabular Cup System
MicroPort Orthopedics acetabular cup systems are built on over 25 years of market history with a focus on bone conservation and flexibility for the surgeon.
Procotyl® L Acetabular Cup System History
Today’s orthopedic surgeons face many challenges with acetabular fixation. As improved mechanical designs, bearing materials and techniques diminish short term failures, the focus has moved to long term survivorship. The Procotyl® L Acetabular Cup System has integrated several design features to address contemporary issues.
The intrinsic design features that address contemporary two-piece acetabular cup issues, coupled with multiple liner configurations, make the Procotyl® L Acetabular Cup System the choice for surgeons requiring a wide range of primary, revision and bearing material options.
- Outer geometry
Cementless hemi-spherical – single radius with flattened dome 14° rim flare.
- Ingrowth surface
An irregularly layered porous titanium bead coating enhances initial fixation and long term bone apposition. Available with or without HA-coating.
- Unique 18° internal taper and Rim-Locking Groove
To accept BIOLOX®delta ceramic liners and A-Class® advanced cross-linked poly liners (0° and 15° lip options).
- Additional fixation options provided
by 3 pre-closed fixation holes in one quadrant of the cup allow for surgical flexibility.

Individual results and activity levels after surgery vary and depend on many factors including age, weight and prior activity level. There are risks and recovery times associated with surgery and there are certain individuals who should not undergo surgery.
