Abstract: front page image
(EN)A tibial insert includes a base and a post extending from the base along a longitudinal axis. The post has a medial surface, a lateral surface, and a height along the longitudinal axis. The medial surface has a medial section, and the lateral surface has a lateral section oriented substantially parallel to the medial section. The medial section and the lateral section each have a width in a substantially anterior-posterior direction that is sufficient to enable varus/valgus constraint over a flexion/extension range from extension to about 90 to 120 degrees of flexion when the tibial insert is mated with a femoral component.
(FR)L'invention concerne un insert tibial comprenant une embase et un montant s'étendant à partir de l'embase le long d'un axe longitudinal. Le montant présente une surface médiane, une surface latérale et une hauteur le long de l'axe longitudinal. La surface médiane comprend une section médiane et la surface latérale comprend une section latérale orientée sensiblement parallèlement à la section médiane. La section médiane et la section latérale présentent chacune, dans une direction sensiblement antérieure-postérieure, une largeur suffisante pour permettre une contrainte varus/valgus sur une amplitude de flexion / extension allant de l'extension à environ 90 à 120 degrés de flexion lorsque l'insert tibial est accouplé à un composant fémoral.
