A Novel Method for Intraoperative Reduction of the Mobile Meniscal Bearing in the Oxford Unicompartmental Knee Replacement
Author(s): Simon M Thompson, Daniel GG Wilson, Nimesh Patel, and Neil W Bradley
Insertion of the bearing can be challenging due to patient body habitus or limited exposure when using a minimally invasive technique. We describe a novel way of inserting the bearing not previously described in the literature. The bearing is positioned on the femoral component in full flexion. Then, with a gentle extension of the knee, the bearing snaps into position and is seated correctly on a consistent basis.
