AVON Patello-Femoral Joint Replacement System

The AVON Patello-Femoral Joint Replacement can be a clinically effective alternative to TKR for patients with isolated patello-femoral arthritis. It is designed to reproduce the natural patello-femoral joint throughout the range of motion and to facilitate tracking of the patella in the femoral groove. The AVON has been reported as a comfortable and reliable implant.3 Lateral release, using AVON PFJ, is not needed. Minimal bone resection is required for easy conversion to TKR if necessary.

Features & Benefits

AVON is the only PFJ replacement system with 2-5 years of published clinical results citing 90 percent survivorship in more than 100 or more knees.4,5 It provides reproducible congruity of the natural joint,1 accurate patella tracking for patient comfort,2 low patella complication,2 and bone sparing.2
