Abstract

In the last few years, on the basis of the excellent long-term results achieved with unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR), there is growing interest in single or combined compartmental substitutions of the knee while preserving the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) [1] (Fig. 11.1). This kind of prosthesis is consistent with tissue-sparing surgery (TSS), the aim of which is to reduce local and general surgical aggression and thereby to optimize the patient's postoperative course and functional recovery.
