Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) survival remains variable across implants and institutions. A strong relationship has been proven between UKA survival and surgeon volume, implying that achieving well-aligned UKAs is important for maximizing survival. In nearly half of UKA revisions, the indication for revision is unexplained pain, and elevated proximal tibial strain and microdamage are thought to contribute to this.
