HemiCAP Implant for the Knee
Knee implants are artificial devices that form the essential parts of the knee during a knee replacement surgery. The knee implants vary by size, shape, and material. Implants are made of biocompatible materials that are accepted by the body without producing any rejection response. Implants can be made of metal alloys, ceramics, or plastics, and can be joined to the bone. The metals used include stainless steel, titanium, and cobalt chrome; whereas, the plastic used is polyethylene.
The type implant used may depend on the patient’s bone quality and the health of the ligaments surrounding the knee. Based on the patient’s age and activity level, there are different types of knee implants used in knee replacement surgery. HemiCAP is a knee implant used to replace only the damaged part of the knee joint without impairing the normal anatomy of the knee joint or the joint range of motion.
