MicroPort Orthopedics has received a “15A” rating for its Advance® Medial-Pivot knee system from the Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel (ODEP).

Fifteen years is the longest benchmark that ODEP assigns ratings for knee implants, providing further evidence of the long clinical heritage of the Advance® Medial-Pivot knee system. ODEP was established in 2002, and provides an independent review of clinical data to assign ratings and share information about the success of arthroplasty implants.

MicroPort Orthopedics’ medial-pivot knee systems stand on more than 20 years of clinically demonstrated history with a complete portfolio of medial-pivot design knees. The Advance® Medial-Pivot knee system was built on the latest kinematic evidence of the natural stability and motion of the knee.[1] Its innovative design is carried on by MicroPort’s latest medial-pivot knee, the Evolution® Medial-Pivot knee system, which also aims to restore function by replicating natural motion and stability, and to address some of the common problems seen with traditional designs, such as anterior knee pain and quadriceps avoidance.

Thanks for the information, @Bumpa. It's always nice to hear from you. I'm moving your thread over to the BoneSmart Library so the information won't get buried in the long and fast-changing list of pre-op threads.

We always appreciate your input here on the forum!
