Knee

Sled Prosthesis

Bone preserving unicondylar knee prosthesis
 Sled endoprosthetics have been a success story with LINK since 1969. Unicondylar knee prostheses can be implanted with low bone destruction and a well-preserved ligamentus apparatus in the knee joint. Continually being improved on, the unicondylar sled delivers outstanding results in everyday clinical practice. In conjunction with the minimally invasive surgical technique MITUS® this surface replacement is particularly bone-sparing and gentle on soft tissue. In the Annual Report 2007* of the Swedish study (The Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Register – Part II) the Endo-Model® sled prosthesis features a survival rate of over 90% in 10 years with 4,124 implantations.


Total Knee – Gemini SL Knee System

Bone surface replacement for cemented or cementless primary surgery

Excellent treatment options for a wide range of patients and indication plus maximum intraoperative versatility.
  • SpheroGrip® macrostruture provides for a homogeneous bone cement/ implant interface and uniform force transmission in the city mantle.
  • Modular, anatomically designed prosthesis omponents
  • Wide choice of sizes, irrespective of gender or ethnicity
  • High survival rate of 98.2% in the arthroplasty register of the Emilia Romagna region of Italy for version with honey comb-shaped structure.
  • Compatibility with other systems in the LINK® SL® Knee Family concept provides comprehensive treatment options.

Mobile Bearing with congruent plateau surface

  • Highly Polished Surface
  • Congruence of the articular surfaces in extension
  • Articulating femoral condyle as fexion increases, greater freedom of flexion and relieving strain on the patella.
  • High congruence stabilizes the joint, also in the absense of the posterior cruciate ligament
  • Independent sizing of femur and tibia
  • Tibial insert size to be matched with femur component.


Total Knee – Difficult Primary

Endomodel Rotational knee

  • Developed in 1979
  • Available in Right and Left verisons
  • Allows flexion upto 165º
  • Stable implant anchorage in case of weakened ligament conditions
  • Anti-Luxation Feature
  • Minimal bone resection
  • Valuable bone substance remains preserved
  • Physiological pivot point and axial rotation achieve natural range of motion
  • Axial rotation protects tibial steam achorage
  • Femoral and Tibial component are coupled by simply slotting the two parts together
  • Easily reproducible implantation technique
  • Reduced rehabilitation time
