Discuss the history of TKA based on development of anatomic and functional based designs. Evolution of liners and constraint. Understanding of history helps explain the controversies that exist with modern implants.
Discuss advantage and disadvantage of different designs for primary TKA. Posterior-Stabilized, Cruciate-Retaining, Highly-Constrained Liner, and Bicruciate Retaining Designs.
Revision TKA designs address Instability and Bone Loss. Instability is addressed thru varying levels of constraint at the joint line. Bone Loss is addressed thru augments, sleeves/cones, or distal femur/proximal tibia replacement.
Indications for Unicondylar Implants has been a work in progress. The initial Kozinn Scott Criteria as undergone significant revision since its publication in 1989. Discuss Fixed-Bearing and Mobile-Bearing designs.
