MediPoint: Partial Knee Replacement – Middle East and Africa Analysis and Market Forecasts

Partial knee replacement (PKR), or unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA), is an alternative to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) used to treat patients whose osteoarthritic condition is isolated to the medial or lateral tibio-femoral compartments. PKR is a less invasive procedure than TKA that replaces only the damaged part of the joint with a prosthesis, resulting in less blood loss and the preservation of healthy ligaments, cartilage, and bone in the knee. The decision to undergo a PKR instead of TKR is based on the disease stage, patient expectations, published results, and surgeon expertise. Studies have shown that compared to TKR, PKR performed with accurate technique and proper patient selection offers advantages that include a high rate of return to sport, fewer complications, and cost savings. PKR is contraindicated for inflammatory arthritis, multicompartment disease, severe subluxation, non-articular deformity, and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency. Yet, with improvements in surgical techniques and technology, the indications and effectiveness of PKR procedures has increased. GlobalData believes that active adults who want to lead a pain-free active lifestyle as they age will drive the procedure volume of PKR in the forecast period.
