New Partial Knee Resurfacing System Demonstrates Less Wear

March 5, 2008 - Stryker Orthopedics unveiled its Triathlon PKR at the 2008 American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Annual Meeting.

The Triathlon PKR is a partial knee resurfacing system that reportedly uses the company’s X3 advanced bearing technology, which has demonstrated up to a 96 percent decrease in wear in laboratory testing compared to competitive premium bearing surfaces in total knee replacements, said the company.
Potential benefits of partial knee resurfacing include a quicker operation and a shorter hospital stay, with the procedure in some cases being performed on an outpatient basis. With Triathlon PKR, less bone is removed and there is often less trauma to soft tissue during surgery, said the company. The device is also anatomically shaped and designed to enable surgeons to use the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Stryker is also featuring its Triathlon TS Revision System, which is designed to provide Triathlon performance in a streamlined revision procedure.
