Premier™ Total Knee Instrumentation

July 26, 2016

The Vanguard Knee System offers the flexibility to change from a cruciate retaining (CR) to a posterior stabilized (PS) or posterior stabilized constrained (PSC) knee within a single system. The transition between each constraint level can be made with ease, allowing the physician to evaluate soft tissue and bone deficiencies intraoperatively without making a preoperative commitment to the level of constraint. Either a traditional or minimally invasive technique can be utilized with Premier Total Knee Instrumentation. It is important to note that minimally invasive methods can be utilized on nearly all patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty.
