EPM Mueller Extractor Set
The EPM Mueller® Extractor is a valuable instrument for efficient extraction of various orthopaedic implants in revision arthroplasty and trauma surgery. The modular design allows for the use of different attachments thus offering a universal extraction method for a wide range of orthopaedic and trauma surgeries.
Safe and efficient stem removal
There are a number of challenges during revision arthroplasty and trauma surgery. Even if the implant is loose and micro motion is possible, it is still partly fixated. The EPM Mueller® Extractor facilitates the loosening of the implant for safe removal and minimizing the risk of fractures.
Most extraction devices direct the force in undesired planes. A Finite Element Analysis (FEM) of the EPM Mueller® Extractor has shown that the entire extraction force is transmitted only along the centre axis of the stem, eliminating lateral forces and therefore minimizing the risk of bone fractures.
The modular design of the EPM Mueller® Extractor makes the system useful for removal of a wide range of hip and knee prosthesis as well as trauma implants.
The EPM Mueller® Extractor system has two different attachments for removing femoral components during hip revision arthroplasty. These two attachments fit a wide range of stems with or without fixed heads and can therefore be used universally. The system can also be fitted with spreading or clamping jaws for removing acetabular components such as screw cups. The same spreading or clamping jaws can also be used for removing femoral or tibial components during knee revision arthroplasty.
The system also has an application in trauma surgery. An M6 thread maker facilitates the extraction of broken stems, drills and screws. Furthermore the EPM Mueller® Extractor system contains a pin and sling attachment for custom extraction solutions. A special connector will also allow for pneumatic handling.
- One modular system for a wide range of revision arthroplasty and trauma surgeries.
- Transfers the force along the centre axis of the implant, minimizing the risk of cortical bone fractures.
- Fully autoclavable without disposable items.
