A posterior-stabilizing knee prosthesis, called the Bisurface knee (Kyocera Corp, Kyoto, Japan), with a ball-and-socket joint installed in the midposterior portion of the tibiofemoral joint, has been developed to satisfy 2 conflicting demands in knee joint design: kinematics and wear resistance. To confirm if the prosthesis has achieved its design objectives, a contact area and stress study was done throughout the range of motion and compared with results obtained for the Insall-Burstein 2 knee… CONTINUE READING
