Abstract

UKA necessitates a learning period. From this point of view, it would be logical to prefer the design that tolerates suboptimal tibial rotations better, especially for inexperienced surgeons. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the clinical and radiological results of mobile-bearing and fix-bearing UKA designs in case of suboptimal tibial rotations.
