Patellofemoral Arthroplasty: NAVIO
Patellofemoral arthroplasty is a well-recognized intervention for patients suffering from isolated patellofemoral arthritis. Despite improvements in surgical technique and implant design, it remains a technically challenging procedure. Early failures are often related to technical issues in performance of the procedure, particularly rotational malalignment and suboptimal position relative to the adjacent condylar cartilage. The NAVIO robotic sculpting tool allows for robotically assisted trochlear bone preparation and idealized implant position.
