We have invented, settled and patented an extra-articular knee prosthesis which aim is to stop the deterioration of the joint and cartilage in internal osteoarthritis. This prosthesis, under skin and extra-articular, allows the healing of the cartilage without damaging the articulation. The equipment is removed when the knee has recovered a painless and normal functioning.
The principle is innovative: it stops the pathology and, in addition, it allows the recovery of the damaged compartment.
This extra-articular prosthesis can be used for 2 other indications in the framework of a protective complementary action of an already done surgery:
- Protection of mosaic plasty for 6 to 10 weeks, and
- Protection of stem cell injection for 3 months.
