Oxinium Knee Replacement Club
Srikara Hospitals is one of the center doing the most number of oxinium knee’s with verilast technology, nearly 50% of our patients opting for it. Oxinium Zirconium, a nearly inert material, with no metal sensitivity.
HIGHLY ADVANCED KNEE IMPLANT
JOURNEY™ II BCS
JOURNEY™ II BCS is a next generation knee implant to replace degenerated knee with lesser pain, faster healing, and ‘natural’ mobility.
World over, Orthopedic surgeons seeking treatment solutions beyond traditional knee replacements are recommending JOURNEY™ II BCS, the next generation knee implant which has been bio-engineered to empower patients with a renewed right to an active lifestyle by breaking through traditional knee replacement barriers.
In this new knee implant, the muscles and ligaments around the new joint don’t have to work harder unlike in the traditional joint implant. The natural shape is given to JOURNEY™ II BCS and its resulting motion allows soft tissues to move in familiar ways. This leads to higher patient satisfaction scores, more mechanical efficiency of the muscle, and a more natural feeling while walking or bending after their procedure.
This knee replacement system helps patients return to their pre-arthritis lifestyle very soon. This implant with higher strength, durability and better & smoother knee mobility is a sigh of relief for the patients, recommended for a knee replacement.
This JOURNEY II BCS implant accommodates the swing-and-rotate of the knee with the same engineering principles as the natural knee. As a result, the muscles and ligaments around the new joint don’t have to work harder because the implants natural shape and resulting motion allow these soft tissues to move in familiar ways.
This leads to higher patient satisfaction scores, more mechanical efficiency of the muscle, and a more natural feeling while walking or bending within a short span after the procedure. The traditional knee implant had a restriction that created unnatural motion with asymmetric, circular design, or with a rotating platform, causing extra effort and discomfort to the patient for a longer period of time.
The JOURNEY II BCS Knee System has been specifically designed through proprietary simulation software (LifeModeler) to address the rapidly changing expectations of patients to return to an active lifestyle, post knee replacement procedure.
The bearing coupled with Oxinium and highly crosslinked –UHMWPE(XLPE), exhibits low wear characteristics. Most of the tibial inserts exhibited burnishing patterns with adhesive and abrasive wear. No evidence of fatigue wears or cracks noted. Simulating forces of use showed at three years – 98% lower wear at 30 years – 81% lower more wear compared to CoCr, no changes in the femoral component and reduced risk of osteoly potential.
With the continuing trend towards younger, more active patients need for the joint with increased levels of wear performance, VERILAST TECHNOLOGY is evolved with FDA approval of 30years wear performance invivo…
