Fracture and Posterior Dislocation of Meniscal Bearing Insert in Mobile Bearing Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty: A Case Report
Dislocation of meniscal bearing insert is a rare but well-recognized complication in meniscal bearing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). On the other hand, fracture of meniscal bearing insert of phase III Oxford UKA has only been reported once in the current literature. The authors report a case of fracture and posterior dislocation of one of the fragments of the meniscal bearing insert in a mobile bearing medial UKA. The fracture was only diagnosed during the revision surgery. The posteriorly dislodged fragment was subsequently retrieved through the same skin incision and a new polyethylene insert of the same size was implanted.
