Hip stem prosthesis with functional channels and cavities, cellular internal structures and macro porous surface areas

On the one hand, beam melting technology offers the possibility for direct manufacturing of patient individual implants on the basis of CT or MRT data. And on the other hand, implants with design characteristics which are hardly possible respectively impossible to produce with conventional production technology can be manufactured in series via beam melting technology. These include e.g. inner channels and cavities (e.g. for postoperative medication or endoscopy), lattice-like structures (e.g. for stiffness adaptation of the implant to the surrounding bone) and surface structures (e.g. for improved bone and tissue integration into the implant).
