ClearCast Bones Customer Instructions

Supply one workshop bone for each unique implant you want displayed as a ClearCast Bone. You only have to do this one time with each implant. The workshop bones will be used as patterns to produce molds. Simply perform a surgery on a set of workshop bones and affix the implants. Do not put tibial inserts‚ acetabular inserts or femoral heads in place after completing the workshop bones‚ leave them separate. Please remember the molds will only work for the original implant sizes you supplied on the workshop bones.

Hips:

With each order, please supply a hip stem, acetabular cup, acetabular insert (liner), and femoral head. Do not insert the acetabular insert into the cup, we'll do that after the ClearCast Bone in polished. Please supply hip stems with distal diameters in the range of 9mm to 13mm.
