When the Oxford unicompartmental meniscal bearing arthroplasty (UCA) is used in the lateral compartment 10% of the bearings dislocate. A fluoroscopic study was performed to investigate if abnormal mid-sagittal plane kinematics was related to bearing dislocation. Video fluoroscopy is an accepted means of determining in-vivo knee kinematics in the sagittal plane. Video fluoroscopy was obtained of 5 Oxford lateral UCAs 10 years post-operatively and of five normal knees. Patellar tendon angle (PT...Expand abstract
