Title: A successful pathway for the treatment of knee medial compartment osteoarthritis with uncompartmental knee arthroplasy
In recent years, the use of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) for the treatment of localized, medial compartmental osteoarthritis of the knee has regained popularity. Numerous studies have shown that after 10 years the survival rate of UKA implants exceeds 90%. However, when compared to knee arthroplasty (TKA) registry data on knee replacements indicate a slightly higher rate of revisions and failures for (UKA). It is worth noting that performing (UKA) requires experience and surgical frequency to achieve best outcomes. The key factors to minimize revision rates include patient selection, thorough planning, precise alignment of the prosthesis during surgery and appropriate post-operative rehabilitation. In this presentation we will discuss our approach at Queens Hospital Burton (UK) to ensure results with UKA from the initial patient consultation through five years, after the surgery.
