Due to an aging population, the number of Total Knee Arthroplasties (TKA) keeps increasing. Despite significant efforts, progress is still needed to improve the outcome of the current 20% of patients who are not satisfied with their surgical results.8
The kneeEOS online software is used to plan a primary, total knee arthroplasty by automatically selecting and positioning implants in 3D. The surgeon can modify the plan with immediate feedback on how changes to the plan affect relevant clinical parameters in 3D.
Thanks to the full body, weight-bearing 3D EOS images, kneeEOS can be used to anticipate the consequences of the prosthesis placement on leg alignment and knee rotation; two key criteria for successful total knee arthroplasties.
- Patient-matched implant size selection without complex radiological calibration protocols
- Unique 3D planning for implant positioning, including the resection levels on the femur and the tibia, without the need for additional CT exams
- Real-time 3D surgical simulations of the impact on leg alignment (HKA) and knee rotations (varus/valgus, flexion/extension, internal/external rotation) in a functional position
- Automatic proposal of implant size and position according to the 2D/3D patient data set
- Online database of 3D implants from multiple manufacturers
- Online access from any computer through a compliant server
- Customizable, patient-specific planning reports
