Abstract

Partial knee arthroplasty has enjoyed renewed interest during the past decade. It is helpful to be familiar with the classic and current indications, contraindications, and technical aspects of partial knee arthroplasty, including patellofemoral, medial unicompartmental, and lateral unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. Various implant choices for partial knee arthroplasty can be compared and evaluated based on patient characteristics, design qualities, and reported outcomes. It is also helpful to review the indications and techniques for performing medial or lateral unicompartmental knee arthroplasty in combination with arthroscopically assisted reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament.
