Functional description

The Universal Patella is used to resurface the Patella in either primary or revision total knee arthroplasty

and is compatible with the implant systems Vega, e.motion, Columbus and EnduRo. The rear of the patella

implant has 3 pegs for fixation in the bone. Cement pockets on the under surface of the patella guarantee

the minimum thickness of the cement mantle. The Patella implants are made out of UHMWPE and include

X-Ray markers made out of Stainless steel.

Intended purpose

knee endoprosthetic components. Indicated for use in severe knee joint conditions that cannot be treated

through other therapies:

· Degenerative osteoarthritis

· Rheumatoid arthritis

· Posttraumatic arthritis

· Symptomatic knee instability

· Knee stiffness

· Deformation of the knee joint

The surgeon can select the optimum solution for the patient from the various implant types of the knee

systems, according to the severity of the condition. The surgeon is responsible for correctly establishing

the indication.
