Introducing the EPM Mueller Extractors

The EPM Mueller Extractor is used in Revision Hip Arthroplasty procedures for removal of implanted prosthesis.
Its unique design allows the force to be transmitted directly along the center axis of the prosthesis,
therefore eliminating the lateral forces which can result in fracture during extraction.

The key to this instrument is the patented clamping mechanism and head with exceptional clamping force
ensuring a secure connection between most instrument and implant necks and tapers commercially available.
