Functional description

The tibial bearing is constructed of direct compression moulded Arcom UHMWPE and articulates with the

femoral and tibial tray components in patients requiring posterior cruciate substitution. The posterior

stabilised plus bearing limits rotation to +/-2 degrees and varus/valgus lift-off to 2 degrees.

Intended purpose

The Vanguard posterior stabilised plus UHMWPE tibial bearing is designed for use in treatment of low

demand, less active or sedentary patients requiring posterior cruciate substitution. The PS plus bearing is

indicated for use in a primary situation when more stability and initial constraint is desired to resist rotation

and varus/valgus lift-off, as one component of the Vanguard total knee system. The indications for use:

1. Painful and disabled knee joint resulting from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis

where one or more compartments are involved.

2. Correction of varus, valgus or posttraumatic deformity.

3. Correction or revision of unsuccessful osteotomy, arthrodesis, or failure of previous joint replacement

procedure.
