[Medial unicompartmental knee replacement using the "Oxford Uni" meniscal bearing knee]

Abstract:

Medial unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR) has many advantages over total replacement (TKR) including better function and reduced morbidity. However, the long-term failure rates of fixed-bearing UKR are high, especially because of polyethylene wear. The fully congruent mobile bearing of the Oxford UKR exhibits minimal polyethylene wear, failure from this cause does not seem to occur before 10 years. The instrumentation allows precise implantation to restore isometric function of the ligam...
