The Future of High Performance Total Knee Arthroplasty
Successful high performance knee arthroplasty is dependent on durability, efficient return to high activity, and patient satisfaction from a "normal" feeling joint. Critical elements of arthroplasty procedures include patient factors, surgical approach, instrumentation, and prosthesis design. New techniques and technologies such as arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery, navigation and computer-assisted surgery, and new bearing surfaces and implant designs must be evaluated and improved to make arthroplasty procedures more sophisticated and effective. A proper balance needs to be reached between high performance and survivorship, so that one does not compromise the other. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
