The concept of unicondylar resurfacing was developed by McKeever and Elliot [27] in the 1950s and utilized through the 1960s. Cemented hemiarthroplasty (femoral and tibial surfaces) was first reported in the early 1970s in North America by Gunston. Marmor [25] utilizing the fixed-bearing knee with different geometry (Fig. 1).
