Univers™ Apex Total Shoulder System

The Univers Apex system represents the evolution of Arthrex® total shoulder arthroplasty systems. While maintaining all of the insitu variable adjustment capabilities of the Univers II total shoulder system (inclination, version, head offset), the Apex introduces advanced features important in the treatment of all total shoulder patients. The reduced diaphyseal stem length, rectangular stem body, and removable trunnion optimize stem removal and therefore revisability. In addition, strategically incorporated suture holes allow for unique subscapularis repair options. The system is compatible with Univers VaultLock®, pegged, and keeled glenoid systems, as well as with the Univers II humeral head options. In keeping with the Arthrex focus on intraoperative adaptability, the Apex restores normal patient glenohumeral anatomy in a stable, press-fit solution while allowing for bone-conserving stem revision.
