The LEGION Revision Knee System has been designed to offer the orthopaedic surgeon improved options to deal with the complexities associated with revision knee arthroplasty, while providing them in a manner that is relatively simple to execute. The instrumentation has been developed to be an easy-to-use system that will allow the surgeon to obtain accurate and reproducible results while improving the ease with which a surgeon can manage bone mass, restore limb alignment and improve knee function. Failed total knee arthroplasty due to aseptic loosening, osteolysis, instability, malalignment or infection can be reconstructed using the LEGION Revision Knee System.
Key elements in revision knee arthroplasty include:
- restoration of proper limb alignment
- achievement of proper prosthetic component position
- restoration of knee biomechanics
- balanced medial/lateral and flexion/extension gaps.
The achievement of these goals will lead to proper patellofemoral mechanics, functional range of motion and optimized patient satisfaction.
