Hurst, J. et al. found that Oxford Microplasty instrumentation simplifies the surgical technique, providing more accurate and reproducible femoral and tibial implant positioning.1
The study showed that Microplasty instrumentation also resulted in a greater number of 3 mm and 4 mm bearings being implanted (92% vs. 84%; p=0.001)1 compared to Phase 3 Instrumentation, which Pandit, H. et al demonstrated has better survivorship than 5 mm bearings and thicker.2
A further study by Berend, K. et al. found a reduction in OR time of almost 9 minutes when using Microplasty Instrumentation compared to Phase 3 Instrumentation.3
Furthermore, Koh, et al. showed that Oxford Microplasty instrumentation reduced the risk of dislocation compared to Phase 3 Instrumentation.4
