Triathlon® Partial Knee Replacement (PKR) Outcomes Study

Study Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare the 10-year Knee Society Score (KSS) functional results of the Triathlon PKR Unicondylar Knee to the 10-year Knee Society Score (KSS) functional results of the Triathlon Cruciate Retaining (CR) Total Knee.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

More Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • - The subject is a male or non-pregnant female 21-75 years of age at the time of enrollment.
  • - The subject requires a primary cemented unicompartmental knee replacement.
  • - The subject has a diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA) or posttraumatic arthritis (TA).
  • - The subject has clinically intact cruciate and collateral ligaments and no ligamentous instability is present.
  • - The subject has less than 10 degrees of flexion contracture and greater than 90 degrees of flexion.
  • - The subject's preoperative mechanical alignment is less than 15 degrees of varus and 15 degrees of valgus.
  • - The subject has signed the Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved study specific Informed Patient Consent Form.
  • - The subject is willing and able to comply with postoperative scheduled clinical and radiographic evaluations and rehabilitation.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • - The subject has inflammatory arthritis or avascular necrosis(AVN).
  • - The subject is obese, BMI > 35.
  • - The subject has a history of total or unicompartmental (contralateral compartment and/or patellofemoral joint) reconstruction of the affected joint.
  • - The subject has a history of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
  • - The subject has had a high distal femoral, or proximal tibial osteotomy.
  • - The subject has a mental, neuromuscular or neurosensory disorder, which would create an unacceptable risk of prosthesis instability, prosthesis fixation failure, or complications in post-operative care and/or limit the ability to assess the performance of the device.
  • - The subject has a systemic or metabolic disorder leading to progressive bone deterioration that the surgeon feels would affect the overall outcome of the study.
  • - The subject is immunologically suppressed, or is receiving chronic steroids (>30 days duration).
  • - The subject has a known sensitivity to device materials.
  • - The subject's bone stock is compromised by disease and/or infection which cannot provide adequate support and/or fixation to the prosthesis.
  • - The subject's bone stock is compromised by a prior implantation which cannot provide adequate support and/or fixation to the prosthesis.
  • - The subject has an active or suspected latent infection in or about the knee joint.
  • - The subject is a prisoner.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

NCT00966979
Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
