Patellofemoral Joint Arthroplasty

The iBalance® PFJ system is a complete arthroplasty solution for patients with isolated patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthrosis, or other degenerative changes. The system’s low-profile, anatomic trochlear implant—which is available in 4 sizes—articulates with a round dome, 3-peg patellar component.

Simplicity and efficiency are key elements of the iBalance PFJ instrument platform. A single tray of instrumentation minimizes sterilization costs and turnover times and helps ensure predictable, reproducible patellofemoral arthroplasty procedures. Precisely prepare the trochlea to match the underside geometry of the implant with the anterior femoral resection guide and captured jig.
