Prostheses, Joint, Knee, Patellar Component

Definition : Implantable prostheses designed to replace the surface of the patella facing the groove on the femur at the articulation point. These prostheses provide a partial substitution of the knee articulation; they typically consist of a solid plastic or metal/plastic cap with a flat side attached to the patella and the opposite gliding, convex side facing the femur groove. Patellar component joint prostheses are usually anchored to the patella using orthopedic cement (e.g., epoxy); they are used in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as after trauma (e.g., fracture).

Exactech Inc

Exactech began as a dream shared by orthopaedic surgeon Bill Petty, his wife Betty, and biomedical engineer Gary Miller, PhD. Drs. Miller and Petty had worked with several orthopaedic companies and thought they saw some things the industry could do differently, and better. They wanted to make a difference in the quality of care provided to patients suffering from joint diseases like arthritis. In 1985, the Pettys and Dr. Miller made the first step toward realizing their vision by incorporating Exactech on November 8. Since that time, Exactech has leveraged its founding principles to become one of the world's fastest-growing orthopaedic companies.
