The REFLECTION Acetabular Cup System - 5 holes

This system maximises implant stability and minimises wear. This example is made of titanium, which is strong, light, and corrosion-resistant. Depending on what is required, the surgeon can select this type of fitting in different forms and materials - it may have four holes, six holes, be spiked, or made of polymer or ceramic.
