The impact of patient specific instrumentation on unicompartmental knee arthroplasty: A prospective randomised controlled study
Patient specific instrumentation (PSI) has been proposed as a means of improving surgical accuracy and ease of implantation during technically challenging procedures such as unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). The purpose of this prospective randomised controlled trial (RCT) was to compare the accuracy of implantation and functional outcome of mobile bearing medial UKA s implanted with and without PSI by experienced UKA surgeons.
