NexGen® Complete Knee Solution Legacy® Constrained Condylar Knee (LCCK)The NexGen LCCK, a posterior stabilized implant, is intended for patients who, in the physician's judgement, require additional joint stabilization due to inadequate joint stability and ligament function. The LCCK is frequently used for patients undergoing a "revision" or surgery to replace an existing knee joint replacement. The LCCK is designed to help accommodate activities that require at least 0-125 degrees of flexion such as, walking, sitting, and climbing stairs. Patients must have the ability and desire to perform these types of activities after having knee joint replacement surgery.
NexGen LCCK Case Study
The x-rays shown are from a 72-year-old female, a candidate for revision total knee replacement surgery who was diagnosed with multiple, recurrent infections of the right knee. Postoperatively, the patient, upon recovery, had a range of motion after rehabilitation of 0-105 degrees. Note: This case study represents the outcome of only one patient and results may vary.
