Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING A TIBIAL BASEPLATE
Abstract:
A tibial baseplate is described. While the baseplate can include any suitable component, in some instances, it includes a first surface and a second surface, the second surface being substantially opposite to the first surface and the first surface being configured to be seated on a resected surface at a proximal end of a tibia. In some cases, the baseplate also includes a first spacer coupling that is configured to couple a first spacer to at least one of a lateral side and a medial side of the baseplate such that the spacer is disposed between, and is configured to maintain a set minimal distance between, the proximal end of the tibia and a distal end of a femur when the tibial baseplate is seated on the resected surface at the proximal end of the tibia and the spacer is coupled to the tibial baseplate. Other implementations are discussed.
