Patellar Groove Replacement (PGR)

Patello-femoral degenerative joint disease is a frequent, often ignored consequence of some of the most common conditions of the canine stifle such as patellar luxation, or cruciate ligament degeneration and rupture. Surgical treatments of patellar luxation, whether by tibial tuberosity transposition or by corrective osteotomies of the femur and/or tibia, combined with patellar groove deepening by one of several methods, seek restoration of joint stability.

Progression of arthrosis to a chronically painful joint must be expected, but that seems to be an accepted, generally ignored consequence of these surgical interventions. Replacement of the severely effected and/or worn-out patellar groove by a prosthesis presents an option worthy of serious consideration. In an effort to address this need, KYON proposed a novel prosthesis, the KYON Patellar Groove Replacement (PGR).
