Total Knee Revision

The first dedicated knee revision software on the market

The failure rate of knee revision implants after 10 years is reported to be 22%. There are various reasons for that, but many times the basic cause is to be found in:

  • Change of the jointline, especially proximalization 
  • with resulting Patella baja
  • Malalignment
  • Malrotation of the implants
  • Imbalanced extension and flexion gaps

With OrthoPilot® TKR, Aesculap offers for the first time ever a unique and dedicated software for total knee revision, facing exactly the above mentioned problems. First results show that with OrthoPilot® TKR a precise axis alignment as well as good restoration of jointline and rotational orientation of the femoral component can be reached. This also takes into consideration the soft tissue situation by simulation of residual extension and flexion gaps for the best possible stabilty of the knee. An increased longevity and thus a reduction of the current failure rate in knee revisions is expected.

Software Elements

TKR Features

  • New transmitter fixation for femur and tibia
  • Integrated jointline-planning for the best possible restoration of the jointline-level 
  • Adjustment possibility of the planned rotational correction of the femur 
  • Reamernavigation as an option to prepare stems under navigation control in relation to the mechanical axis and considering the slope 
  • Well established soft tissue management 
  • Interactive femoral planning with simulation of implantation result with special regard to aspired jointline, as well as soft tissue situation prior to final preparation of the femur 
  • Seperate unique augmentation planning in relation to palpated defects 
  • Increased longevity of the implant and thus a decrease of the re-revision rate is expected 
  • Precise and reproducible implantation results with improved postoperative joint function, as well as better mobility and stability
