A Clinical Investigation of the C2a-Taper™ Acetabular System
Post Approval Study of the C2a-Taper™ Acetabular System
The objective of this study is to gather clinical and survivorship information for the C2a-Taper™ Acetabular System, a ceramic-on-ceramic hip articulating system.

Study Design:

Phase 1

Sites will collect the following types of data:

Clinical-Total Harris Hip Score, Radiographic Evaluation- measurements on acetabular and femoral components Survivorship-removal/revision of one or more components (i.e. liner, head, shell and/or stem) Safety- All other adverse events

Follow-up Visit schedule

  • 6 week ± 2 weeks
  • 6 month ± 1 month
  • 1 year ± 3 months
  • 2 years ± 3 months
  • 3 years ± 3 months
  • 4 years ± 3 months
  • 5 years ± 3 months

Phase 2:

Patients continue to be followed on an annual basis (Years 6-10) via mail. A self assessment form is sent directly to the subject on an annual basis starting in the 6th post-operative year.
