Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Knee Society Score [ Time Frame: Preoperative-2 years ]
    Assess knee pain, function and range of motion using the Knee Society Clinical Rating System

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Oxford Knee Outcome Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Preoperative, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years ]
    Patient evaluation of function

  2. Radiographic Evaluation [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 1 year and 2 years ]
    X-rays will be assessed for evidence of implant loosening, surface wear, migration or any other clinical or radiographic abnormalities.

  3. Patient Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years ]
    Patient satisfaction questionnaire to be completed at each follow-up visit

  4. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: When Necessary ]
    All intra-operative, discharge, and post-operative surgical/hospitalization or study knee-related adverse events will be captured during the study to assess for safety issues.

Ages Eligible for Study:   30 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
The patients eligible for this study are non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease patients requiring a primary unilateral knee surgery. The affected areas must be limited to the medial and patellofemoral compartments.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient presents with non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease of the medial and patellofemoral compartments requiring a unilateral knee replacement.
  • Patient is 30 to 75 years of age, inclusive.
  • Patient is willing to consent to participate in the study by signing and dating an IRB-approved consent form.
  • Patient plans to be available for follow-up through five years postoperative.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient is known to have insufficient femoral or tibial bone stock resulting from conditions such as cancer, distal femoral/proximal tibial osteotomy, significant osteoporosis or metabolic bone disorders.
  • Patient is immunosuppressed, has an autoimmune disorder, or an immunosuppressive disorder (i.e. chronic condition characterized by markedly inhibited ability to respond to antigenic stimuli.) Examples of such conditions include patients who are on immunosuppressive therapy (corticosteroid hormones in large amounts, cytotoxic drugs, antilymphocytic serum or irradiation in large doses) or patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
  • Patient has inflammatory arthritis (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Patient has BMI greater than or equal to 40.
  • Patient has had major knee surgery in the past i.e. HTO, unicondylar knee replacement, failed fracture fixation.
  • Patient has an active infection, local or systemic.
  • Patient has physical, emotional or neurological conditions that would compromise the patient's compliance with postoperative rehabilitation and followup (e.g.: drug or alcohol abuse, serious mental illness, or general neurological conditions such as Parkinson, Multiple sclerosis, etc.).
  • Patient has ACL deficiency in the study knee.
  • Patient has hip arthritis and/or replacement.
  • Patient has lateral compartment disease.
  • Patient is pregnant or plans to become pregnant during the course of the study.
  • Patient has a known sensitivity to materials in the device.
