Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery for total knee replacement with Triathlon implants is an example of how technology has transformed knee replacement surgery. The technology of tomorrow is in our hands today.
Robotic-arm assisted orthopedic surgery is in its fourth successful year in Greece.
A development in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis is total knee arthroplasty, assisted by an advanced, digital navigation system (computer-assisted surgery, CAS).
With the assistance of the digital navigator, the surgeon determines the parameters accurately, performs osteotomies and balances the soft tissue of the joint with digital precision.
The posterior cruciate ligament tear can be repaired with arthroscopy. Tearing of the posterior cruciate ligament is rare.
The clinical condition of the patient includes: painful knee stiffness, small edema and inability to bear full weight. This injury is typically caused by a great amount of force, so it is often accompanied by other conditions, most commonly by an injury to the posterior outer angle.
The anterior cruciate ligament tear is a very common knee injury. The anterior cruciate ligament can be torn by a rotational injury, as well as by violent knee hyperflexion or hyperextension.
The tear is often accompanied by meniscus and/or lateral ligament injuries.
