Introducing Mako Total Knee, the newest application for the Mako System. In a cadaveric study, this application demonstrated the potential to increase the accuracy of TKA bone cuts and component placement to plan, even for an experienced user of manual instrumentation who is new to robotic technology. On average, Mako Total Knee final bone cuts and final component positions were 5.0 and 3.1 times more precise to plan than the manual total knee arthroplasty control, respectively.4
Mako Total Knee demonstrated soft tissue protection, including no ligament disruption to the PCL, MCL, LCL, and patella ligament, and did not require tibial subluxation or patella eversion for visualization during cutting, in a cadaveric study.5
Our U.S. market-leading Triathlon Total Knee System has demonstrated 99% survivorship in a ten-year study6, with over 2 million implanted worldwide.7
A) Manually performed TKA with arrow pointing to PCL, with no bone island preparation.
B) Robotically performed TKA, with bone island preparation in front of PCL and corresponding tibial view from Implant Planning page (showing implant plan to the actual boney anatomy, with remaining bone island). Black arrow points to PCL. White arrows outline bone island.
