Summary
Brief summary
This trial reports the unforeseen consequence of a novel design of a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) that resulted in a specific mechanical and tribiological mode of failure.

Convex polyethylene bearings were developed to decrease bearing dislocation and used in 32 patients with disabling medial compartment osteoarthritis of the knee.

This study reports the clinical outcomes (PROMS) and revisions for failed implants,
