A Study to Determine the Performance of the Press Fit Condylar (P.F.C.) Sigma RP-F Knee System

2014-07-23 21:20:10 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the P.F.C. Sigma RPF knee accommodates functional stability with a post-operative passive range of motion of greater than 125° of flexion and to demonstrate that the range of motion does not compromise the longevity of the implant.


Primary endpoint is to demonstrate that 90% of patients have a functionally stable knee that can achieve post operative range of motion of 125 degrees or greater.

The secondary endpoint is to investigate the survivorship of the P.F.C. Sigma RP-F knee at 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15 and 20 years

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Replacement of the knee joint.

Replacement for a knee joint.

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage.
