Stryker recently received the FDA 510(k) clearance for its MDM X3 Modular Dual Mobility mobile bearing hip system, according to a company news release.
The MDM X3 is an addition to the company's portfolio of next-generation technologies designed to minimize risks associated with hip replacement surgery, including both primary and revision total hip arthroplasty patients. The device allows the surgeon to offer Stryker's dual mobility technology to a broader patient population, including those who require advanced fixation.
The device is designed to enhance stability and jump distance, which could increase the range of motion in some patients.
