Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) - also known as unicondylar knee arthroplasty or partial knee replacement - is an excellent surgical option for the treatment of isolated medial, lateral and patellofemoral compartment arthritis of the knee, as long term results suggest high patient satisfaction and survivability that rivals total knee arthroplasty (TKA). These procedures are well-suited for rapid recovery protocols and outpatient surgery through well-structured surgical pathways. With demand increasing for knee arthroplasty, patients presenting sooner and at a younger age, and an ever-increasing interest from patients, surgeons and payors in outpatient surgery, the demand for unicompartmental arthroplasty is expected to increase significantly. This text will assist orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, residents and attendings in developing successful pathways for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, divided into three thematic sections. Part one discusses the history, indications and patient selection for UKA, including how to manage patient expectations, as well as implant choices. Surgical techniques for UKA are presented in part two, both the medial and lateral sides, with discussion of mobile bearings, pain management, blood preservation strategies, and therapy options both before and after surgery. Complications and their prevention are presented in part three, including periprosthetic fractures and infection. Timely and practical, Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty will provide orthopedic surgeons and related clinical staff with all they need to know to bring this increasingly common technique into practice.

This issue of Clinics in Sports Medicine will cover the latest technology and techniques in partial knee arthroplasty, including the use of robotics, different types of custom implants, and advice on return-to-activity. It will also offer information on different possible outcomes and complications that could occur after surgery. This topic has not been covered in Sports Medicine in at least the past ten years, and, as it grows as a popular treatment, it should become a useful issue of CSM.
This book offers a concise review and international perspective on state-of-the art unicompartmental knee reconstruction procedures. To apply less invasive procedures resulting in fewer complications and shorter recoveries, it provides insights on patient selection, equipment design, and surgical techniques. Newer concepts such as the use of robotics and haptic surgery as well as outpatient surgeries are natural extensions of these surgeries. Long term outcomes along with complications and future directions are discussed as well. Partial Knee Arthroplasty presents an ideal resource for the occasional partial knee arthroplastic surgeon to the expert interested in international and contemporary advances in partial knee replacement.

This book traces the 30 year development by surgeons and engineers in Oxford of a unique method of unicompartmental knee replacement with the 'Oxford Knee' prosthesis.
Pushed by the progress of biology, technology and biomechanics, knee surgery has dramatically evolved in the last decades. This book is a "state of the art" concerning all aspects of knee surgery from ligament reconstruction to Total Knee Arthroplasty. An international panel of renowned authors have worked on this didactic fully illustrated book. It will help young surgeons to understand basic sciences and modern sugical techniques. The experienced surgeon will find help to deal with difficult cases and clarifications in recent technologic advances such as cartilage surgery, navigation and mini invasive surgery.
"Take away my knee pain and give me better motion." This is what the arthritic patient expects from a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). By virtue of standardization of the TKA procedure, surgeons can nowadays solve the pain issue for the majority of the patients. Restoration of function is a goal of a different order and forms the scope of this book. The editors confronted today's leading knee surgeons with the limitations of current surgical techniques and technology. They challenged them to define new thresholds of functional capacity after Total Knee Arthroplasty. "A Guide to Get Better Performance in TKA" describes the cutting edge in surgical techniques, prosthetic design and achievement of excellent function for these patients.

This book, traces the 30 year development by surgeons and engineers in Oxford of a unique method of unicompartmental replacement with the 'Oxford Knee' prosthesis. The challenge to the surgeon is to replace the damaged surfaces of the arthritic joint so effectively that the soft tissues of thewhole joint and the surfaces of the other compartments can resume all their physiological functions, a more difficult task than total knee replacement confronts. As a user's guide, the book allows the surgeon to gain a good understanding of the biomechanics of the normal knee, of the pathologicalanatomy of unicompartmental arthritis and the rationale of the design of instruments and implants. The outcome of the operation depends greatly on choice of the right patient and exact implantation of the prosthesis, subjects that are dealt with exhaustively. The reader can use this book as anadjunct to the implant specific instructional courses available. The book also provides long-term data on wear and revision rates for the Oxford Knee and covers common questions asked and the problems confronted by users. The book is accompanied by a DVD with animations of mathematical models of theintact and replaced knee, as well as full video footage of a knee replacement operation.
James V. Bono, MD, and Richard D. Scott, MD, two leading authorities in the field, edited this invaluable how-to book on corrective surgery for failed total knee arthroplasty. The text has an in-depth, comprehensive approach geared for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, and residents. All fundamental aspects of revision total knee arthroplasty and its complications are covered. More than 350 illustrations–60 in full color–complement well-written explanations of general principles, surgical procedures, and special considerations. Top experts in orthopedics offer clinical pearls on topics such as diagnosis and evaluation, pre-op planning and component selection, surgical approach, revision technique, post-op complications, and salvage. Radiologists also detail the use of imaging for evaluation. Economics and reimbursement are addressed as well. Readers will find that this thorough and accurate book is an unprecedented guide that unravels the complexity of revision total knee arthroplasty.
