Efficacy of Robot-assisted Technique vs Conventional Technique in Preventing Early Micromobilisation After Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty: a Controlled Randomized Trial
The purpose of this study is to compare the percentage of early micromibilisation in unicompartmental knee arthroplasties in robot-assisted technique vs standard technique.
The purpose of the study is to compare the percentage of early micromobilisation by static radiostereometric analysis (RSA) - primary outcome, gait analysis by inertial sensors to assess gait kinematics, and clinical perdormance measured by american knee society score (AKSS), oxford knee score (OKS), patient satisfaction score (PSS) and EQ5-D - secondary outcomes, among 2 groups of patients, of 25 individuals each, whi undergo medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. The first group will be operated with a robot-assisted technique (with CORI Surgical System, Smith and Nephew, USA), the other with standard technique and the same implant (Journey UNI II, Smith and Nephew, USA). The study will be a randomized and controlled blind superiority trial. Patients will not be informed about performing the surgery with one technique or the other in order to avoid potential biases in the data analysis. Patients will be recruited at the orthoaedic and traumatologic 2nd clinica (head prof S. Zaffagnini) at IRCSS Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli in Bologna, Italy. ;
