Abstract

There has in recent times been a resurgence of interest in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. As experience has broadened, the precise indications, technical expertise, and implants have all undergone substantial development. Additionally, although it has been traditionally reserved for elderly or low-demand patients, recent evidence increasingly suggests an important role for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty in younger patients. We review recent literature on this topic and the indications for performing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty.
