JOURNEY II BCS

Bi-Cruciate Stabilized Knee System

Overview

The JOURNEY II Bi-Cruciate Stabilized knee system has been intricately designed, engineered and tested to facilitate near-normal kinematics;1,2 shown to enhance patient satisfaction and significantly improve patient-reported Knee Society Scores (KSS).3,4

Using physiological matching technology, JOURNEY II BCS has demonstrated pronounced femoral rollback upon flexion and improved mid-flexion medio-lateral stability.5

Rediscover normal

Over 90% of patients return to work within 6 months of surgery.6

23% more flexion than posterior-stabilized TKA after 1 year.3

Evidence demonstrated major revisions of around 1% at 6 years.7

 

Featuring VERILAST technology, with OXINIUM (oxidized zirconium) and highly cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), for improved wear performance.8 


Stability

Near-complete elimination of paradoxical motion and anterior sliding of the femur during flexion.9-16

Strength

Designed to restore anatomic alignment and normal knee kinematic patterns throughout the full range of motion.12-16

Satisfaction

 Designed to restore normal kinematics throughout the range of motion and help patients return to normal activities and lifestyle.17,18

Indications

Indications for use include:   rheumatoid arthritis; post-traumatic arthritis, osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis; failed osteotomies or unicompartmental replacement.

This system is designed for use in patients in primary total knee replacement surgery, where the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are incompetent and the collateral ligaments remain intact.
