Attune Knee Replacement
The DePuy Synthes ATTUNE Primary Total Knee System is intended for cemented use as a total knee replacement system, for use in patients with a severely painful and/or severely disabled knee joint resulting from:
Rheumatoid arthritis, or
A failed previous implant
According to the manufacturer, the device was designed with the goal of addressing the clinical needs of patients who require a knee replacement procedure, incorporating extensive research and science in the design to help improve functional outcomes for patients. DePuy Synthes claims that the ATTUNE Knee is an innovative, comprehensive, integrated knee system. The company also claims it is one of the largest research and development projects in the history of DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction combining “the latest in design, kinematics, engineering and materials to deliver stability and motion.”
The DePuy Synthes Attune™ Knee System has been at issue in reports of early implant failure due to loosening of the tibial component of the implant.
