Stryker launches partial knee resurfacing system
Stryker Orthopaedics (Mahwah, N.J.) has announced the addition of Triathlon PKR, a partial knee resurfacing system, to the Triathlon Knee System family. The new product uses Stryker’s X3 advanced bearing technology, which the company claims has demonstrated up to a 96 percent decrease in wear in laboratory testing compared to competitive premium bearing surfaces in total knee replacements.

Stryker also unveiled its Triathlon TS Revision System, which is designed to provide Triathlon performance in a streamlined revision procedure. The design is based on the Triathlon Primary System and is designed to provide improved motion, better fit, and the potential for greater implant longevity, according to the company.

The Triathlon TS Revision System also uses X3 bearing technology and incorporates “post preservation features” to help alleviate the stresses typically exerted on a stabilizing post in a revision setting.
