EPRD 2022 – our analysis of hip arthroplasty



Dear Sir or Madam, dear customers and interested parties,

We eagerly awaited the EPRD 2022 report, and this year we have every reason to be happy. In the interview with Mario Frank, we summarized the results for you – especially for the A2® short shaft system.

But the A2® success story goes even further. The French orthopedic company SERF and ARTIQO have signed a distribution agreement and are going together.

With the MDR certification, ARTIQO is preparing for the future. In the preparation for the certification, the QM team received strong support from newcomer Lukas Lehmann.

The 16th Endoprosthetics Congress in Berlin is just around the corner – ARTIQO is represented with its own short stem workshop during the congress as part of the industrial exhibition. Visit us at our booth, we look forward to seeing you!

Enjoy reading and discovering!
