Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty System (UniCAP & UniCAP Small)
Anika’s Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty System (UniCAP® & UniCAP® Small) is the only Unicondylar Implant that allows the meniscus to remain intact.
This system restores the unique articular surface geometry of the compartment by using an intraoperative 3-dimensional mapping system and anatomic implants. The UniCAP knee replacement systems are designed for the medial/lateral compartments and consist of 18 different femoral implant options with 6 inlay tibia sizes.
The fit achieved using the precision instrumentation of the UniCAP system is a significant improvement over existing unicondylar replacements. The implant restores the native joint biomechanics while preserving bone and tissue typically removed with traditional total knee replacement procedures. Proprioception is maintained by leaving all supporting tissues intact. The goal of these systems is to restore normal joint function by preserving native anatomy and replacing only the damaged surfaces of the knee joint.
Key Features & Benefits:
- UniCAP implants maintain existing joint biomechanics and proprioception
- The only tibial implant that preserves the meniscus
- Inlay components preserve the native anatomy of the joint by only removing a small amount of bone, maintaining future options; “No Bridges Burned”
- ACL may be reconstructed, or a realignment osteotomy performed in conjunction with UniCAP implementation
- The two components are connected via morse taper
- Minimally invasive procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis with this simple, intuitive, and reproducible technique
