VISIONAIRE UNI Cutting Guides

Patient Matched Technology

VISIONAIRE Patient Matched instrumentation

Product Info

Our simple approach to proven performance.

VISIONAIRE UNI Cutting Guides are designed based on patient’s unique anatomy. The guide’s inner shape is designed to match the outer shape of the patient’s medial distal femur and medial proximal tibia.

The hand-in-glove fit and captured resections are designed to allow surgeons to make accurate bone cuts to position the UNI knee implant with optimal alignment.1

The UNI guides also ensure consistent high accuracy of component positioning, which has the potential of delivering excellent patient outcomes and high implant survival following UKA.2–3*

By combining the accuracy of VISIONAIRE UNI Cutting Guides,1 an engineering partner and the wide range of Smith & Nephew implant systems, you can potentially simplify and improve the unicompartmental surgical experience.*

Features and Benefits

Features

• Consistent guide fit
• Captured resections are designed to ensure proper
blade positioning and minimize the risk of over resection
• Intuitive preoperative planner to determine:
   −− Component size and positioning
   −− Preoperative alignment (Varus/Valgus)
   −− Postoperative alignment (Varus/Valgus)
   −− Resection depths
   −− Slope
• Saw depth measurement for safety

Benefits

• Preoperative planning streamlines surgical technique
• High surgical accuracy1
• Increases OR efficiencies3–4*
• May reduce OR inventory and costs*
