Not everybody needs their entire knee replaced

If you only have arthritic damage to one compartment of the knee, either the medial or lateral, a total knee replacement might not be your best option.

The iUni® unicompartmental knee implant preserves the parts of the knee parts not damaged by arthritis. As patients become more demanding and more active, the interest in bone and tissue sparing partial knee replacement approaches has increased dramatically.

Partial knee replacement surgery also retains the option for the patient to eventually move to a total knee replacement in the future should that become necessary.

The ConforMIS patient-specific approach offers many benefits with the iUni®:

Provides a patient-specific fit specific to your knee

  • Femoral and tibial implants designed to follow the contour of each patient’s unique anatomy
  • Tibial tray designed for maximised cortical rim coverage and proper rotational alignment

Designed to mimic the natural shape of your knee

  • The shape of your knee plays an important role in how you bend and extend your knee
  • iUni® is designed to mimic the natural shape of your knee, which gives your knee the potential to feel and move more naturally

Allows for a less traumatic procedure

  • iJig® instrumentation customised for each patient using CT scan data
  • Reduced amount of bone preparation to simplify the procedure
  • Fewer bone cuts to preserve more of your natural knee for future treatment, if necessary

Improved operating room efficiencies

  • iUni® is delivered in a single, pre-sterilised kit in advance of surgery, which means limited implant inventory for the hospital
  • Pre-sterilised, disposable instruments mean easy set-up and disposal

iUni® offers precise femoral and tibial fit for optimal coverage and the potential for a more natural feeling knee.

The iUni Knee Replacement System (KRS) is intended for use in one compartment of the osteoarthritic knee to replace the damaged area of the articular surface in patients with evidence of adequate healthy bone sufficient for support of the implanted components. Only a licensed doctor can help you determine the appropriate medical treatment. There are potential risks to knee replacement surgery, and individual results may vary. Before making any decisions concerning medical treatment, consult your doctor regarding your options and the risks of those options. The longevity, performance and feel of any knee implant will depend on various factors, including your physical condition, your activity level, adherence to your doctor’s instructions, and other factors.

Candidates for unicondylar knee replacement include those with:

  • joint impairment due to osteoarthritis or traumatic arthritis of the knee,
  • previous femoral condyle or tibial plateau fracture, creating loss of function,
  • valgus or varus deformity of the knee,
  • revision procedures provided that anatomic landmarks necessary for alignment and positioning of the implant are identifiable on patient imaging scans.

This implant is intended for cemented use only.

Caution: USA federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a doctor.
