Why remove healthy ligaments?
Applying research in knee function and the role an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) has to native kinematics1-5, Biomet introduces its focus on a new arthroplasty, XPA – Bicruciate Preserving Arthroplasty. Biomet is committed to providing orthopedic surgeons with solutions for diverse patient populations and is proud to introduce its portfolio of bicruciate preserving knee solutions: the Oxford Partial Knee and Vanguard XP Total Knee System.
