32831 Uncoated knee femur prosthesis

Functional description

A nonporous CoCr device with a spine and cam mechanism used to replace the distal femur of a knee

joint in skeletally mature patients. It accepts traditional posterior-stabilized or constrained UHMWPE tibial

inserts and, if required, UHMWPE patellar components of the knee joint. This device is indicated for use in

both primary and revision knee replacement surgeries; however, it is mainly used in revision scenarios

when additional constraint and fixation (via stem extensions) are required.

Intended purpose

A total knee system component used to replace the distal femur. Indicated for use in knee arthroplasty in

skeletally mature patients with the following conditions:

1. Noninflammatory degenerative joint disease including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, or avascular


2. Inflammatory degenerative joint disease including rheumatoid arthritis;

3. Correction of functional deformity;

4. Revision procedures where other treatments or devices have failed; and treatment of fractures that are

unmanageable using other techniques.
