Description
Model of the knee replacement components, complete parts and the knee structure for study and medical presentation. Complete with high resolution maps and parts organized in layers.

Posterior-Stabilized Designs
In these designs, the cushion of the tibial component has a raised surface with an internal post that fits into a special bar (called a cam) in the femoral component. The posterior cruciate ligament is removed to fit the components to the bone. The pieces work together to do what the posterior cruciate ligament does: prevent the thighbone from sliding forward too far on the shinbone when you bend your knee.

Cruciate-Retaining Designs

Cruciate-retaining component.
As the name implies, the posterior cruciate ligament is kept with this implant design. Cruciate-retaining implants do not have the center post and cam design. This implant may be appropriate for a patient whose posterior cruciate ligament is healthy enough to continue stabilizing the knee joint.

Unicompartmental Implants
In total knee replacement, large implants are used to resurface the ends of the femur and tibia. If only one side of the knee joint is damaged, smaller implants can be used (unicompartmental knee replacement) to resurface just that side.
