Verso® 

 

 

The Verso Shoulder System is a reverse shoulder replacement and is intended for use in primary and revision reconstructive total shoulder surgery. The prosthesis is intended for cementless fixation and requires minimal bone resection. It was developed as a result of extensive research since 1997 and it has been in clinical use for 11 years (Since 2005).

The Verso Shoulder System is fully compliant with the relevant EC directives. See certificate

The device is intended for total shoulder arthroplasty and indications of use include:

 

  • Shoulder arthropathy with rotator cuff tear or dysfunction
  • Cuff tear arthropathy
  • Non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease including osteoarthritis with deficient rotator cuff
  • Correction of severe functional deformity such as fracture sequelae
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Revision procedures where other treatments or devices have failed
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Massive irreparable rotator cuff tears
