Treating single compartment knee osteoarthritis—options and observations
Unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKAs), also known as partial knee arthroplasties, can achieve outcomes and survivorship comparable to those of total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) and high tibial osteotomies (HTOs). Indications and counterindications, procedure volume considerations, and thresholds for revision are constantly being reassessed, based on increased data on reported patient outcomes. Proper patient selection remains critical to achieve good results.
