Prostheses, Joint, Shoulder, Humeral Component

Definition : Implantable prostheses designed to be affixed to the proximal humerus bone, replacing the head of the humerus. These prostheses provide a partial substitution of the shoulder articulation; they typically consist of a ball attached to a stem that can be inserted in the humerus. Humeral component shoulder prostheses are made typically of metal (e.g., cobalt or chromium alloys) or, less frequently, of ceramics, polymers, or a combination of materials; the prostheses may be intended for implantation with or without bone cement. Humeral component shoulder joint prostheses are used in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, severe fracture of the humerus, or osteonecrosis.

Exactech Inc

Exactech began as a dream shared by orthopaedic surgeon Bill Petty, his wife Betty, and biomedical engineer Gary Miller, PhD. Drs. Miller and Petty had worked with several orthopaedic companies and thought they saw some things the industry could do differently, and better. They wanted to make a difference in the quality of care provided to patients suffering from joint diseases like arthritis. In 1985, the Pettys and Dr. Miller made the first step toward realizing their vision by incorporating Exactech on November 8. Since that time, Exactech has leveraged its founding principles to become one of the world's fastest-growing orthopaedic companies.
