Abstract

Background: Early gonarthrosis is characterized by involvement of one compartment of the knee joint, most commonly the medial tibio-femoral joint (AMOA). Surgical treatment includes debridement, chondroplasty, corrective osteotomy, unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA), or total joint replacement (TKE). Materials and results: The aim of the study is a retrospective analysis of the clinical results after UKA from a cohort of patients operated at the Clinic of Orthopedics and Traumatology, University Hospital "Queen Joanna - ISUL", Medical University Sofia. Patients in the cohort reported a excellent functional outcome, with the exception of two of the participants in the study. Conclusion: UKA is a suitable surgical alternative for teams that have experience with the technique. Careful consideration of the preoperative parameters of patients, as well as creating acceptable and realistic expectations about the postoperative results are crucial for a positive end result.
