Exploiting our more than ten years experience in Patient Specific Instrumentation and our will to move orthopedic market to the concept of Personalized Medicine, we have been able to design a unique set of patient-matched guides to be used in Total Knee Revision surgeries: MyKnee R!
MyKnee R is a set of pin-positioner guides designed to fit directly on any total knee implant in situ and to guide the surgeon in positioning a Medacta total knee prosthesis, ranging from the GMK Sphere to the GMK Revision and GMK Hinge. This solution adds the benefits of MyKnee technology to Revision TKA:
“There is nothing better than being able to rely on a patient-specific solution for each kind of knee surgery. Medacta has a more than ten years experience in the patient-specific solutions and I think that the MyKnee R is a great addition to this range of options. Thanks to the 3D preoperative planning tool and the possibility to accurately and quickly replicate it during the surgery with the 3D-printed guides, every surgeon can easily achieve conservative bone cuts, no-to-minimal alteration of the joint line and an optimized alignment of revision implant components also when revising failed total knee implants."
