Meet the APEX 3D™ Total Ankle Replacement System from Paragon 28®
What is the APEX 3D System?
Modeled after healthy non-arthritic anatomy and is designed to reproduce the natural movement of the ankle.
Based on over a century of combined clinical experience and cutting-edge biomechanical research.
Marks the next generation in total ankle replacement systems with advanced technologies.
Features implant sizes designed to accurately match your anatomy.
Three anatomically contoured implant components designed to help reduce persistent pain and restore natural motion.
APEX 3D™ Tibial Tray
The 3D printed low-profile implant covers the bottom of the tibia to provide a stable platform. The tibial implant is attached to your tibia with bone cement to ensure a secure fit.
APEX 3D™ Vitamin E Insert
The Vitamin E highly cross-linked polyethylene insert is connected to the tibial implant. The bottom portion of the insert glides over the top surface of the talar implant.
APEX 3D™ Anatomic Talar Dome
The talar implant replaces the top surface of the talus. The talar implant is designed to provide a stable footprint and help mimic natural motion. The talar implant is attached to your talus with bone cement to ensure a secure fit.
How it Works: MAVEN® Patient-Specific Technology
- Your surgeon schedules a CT scan of your leg before surgery
- The CT scan is used to create 3D printed instruments and bone models, specific to your ankle anatomy
- The instruments are designed to help your surgeon establish accurate implant size selection and placement
- The bone model allows your surgeon to view your anatomy before surgery
Important Risk Information
In general, healthy patients with painful and disabling ankle arthritis that have failed to improve with non-surgical treatment options are considered candidates for ankle replacement. Only your surgeon can determine this. Consult with your doctor regarding your lifestyle and health to find out if surgery with the APEX 3D System is a good option for you. Individual results and activity levels after surgery vary and depend on many factors including age, weight and prior activity level.
