Mid-Term Outcomes of Metal-Backed Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty Show Superiority to All-Polyethylene Unicompartmental and Total Knee Arthroplasty

Abstract

Two commonly used tibial designs for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) are all-polyethylene “inlay” and metal-backed “onlay” components. Biomechanical studies showed that the metal baseplate in onlay designs better distributes forces over the tibia but studies failed to show differences in functional outcomes between both designs at mid-term follow… (More)
