Simpliciti™ Shoulder System

The Simpliciti Shoulder System is redefining the total shoulder arthroplasty market by providing a total shoulder solution that addresses glenohumeral arthritis while preserving the humeral canal for potential future revisions.

Simpliciti™ Shoulder System

Simpliciti Evolution

The evolution of Simpliciti is a direct result of a desire to improve upon current total shoulder arthroplasty challenges and complications. This evolution has led to a reduction of humeral stem lengths and stabilization fins. The result is the Simpliciti Shoulder System. The canal sparing design eliminates canal-based constraints to allow for anatomic stem placement, preserves bone stock for future prosthetic intervention, and addresses the potential effects of stress fractures, prosthetic loosening and stress shielding.

The Simpliciti implant can be paired with both anatomic and Soft Tissue Balancing (STB) humeral head options in addition to the PerFORM Glenoid System.

Simpliciti Proven

With Tornier’s commitment to better patient outcomes, Tornier completed a rigorous prospective, single arm, multi-center study to demonstrate safety and efficacy of Simpliciti. This FDA IDE trial included 14 centers with enrollment of 157 patients followed to 24 months. Outcome scores were comparable to historical stemmed components with no radiolucency or signs of loosening, subsidence, or migration reported. Additional information includes:

  • Age: Mean of 66 years (range, 37-84)
  • Sex: 45 females and 112 (71%) males
  • BMI: Mean of 31 (range, 18-48)
  • Primary diagnosis: glenohumeral osteoarthritis (96%)
  • Dominant limb was operated on in 53% of cases
  • One known device related complication: aseptic glenoid loosening @ 18 mths

Simpliciti Efficient Implantation

The Simpliciti instrumentation provides a fast, bone preserving process that utilizes standard humeral head resection but no reaming or sounding of the humeral canal. The Simpliciti instrumentation focuses on minimal bone compaction with a press-fit porous coated implant to provide exceptional securement.
