Total Knee Arthroplasty

  Total Knee Arthroplasty

The webcast provided an opportunity for surgeons to gain a practical understanding of how the Triathlon Knee System was designed for natural knee motion. The efficiency, flexibility and orthonomic design of Triathlon's new instrumentation was highlighted during the procedure.

The total knee procedure featured a cruciate retaining TKA performed by Kirby D. Hitt, MD, Scott & White Memorial Hospital, Temple, TX. Steven F. Harwin, MD, FACS, Beth Israel Medical Center, New York, NY, moderated the procedure from the Advances in Surgical Technology meeting in New York.

The Triathlon Knee System incorporates features designed to provide benefits to surgeons, OR staff and patients.

The Triathlon Knee System was designed for natural knee motion with a focus on improving fit based on anthropometric studies. The anatomic radius, flared posterior condyles and rotary arc insert design all help accommodate natural knee motion.

Stryker's complete knee system includes newly designed Triathlon instrumentation, specifically engineered to improved OR efficiency through ease-of-use. Triathlon instrumentation is the first Stryker knee instrumentation to utilize orthonomic design, the application of ergonomic concepts to an orthopaedic device to improve it's form, fit and function.
