The LCS Knee System is based upon the original LCS Mobile-Bearing Knee System, featuring the same low contact stress articular geometry. This rotating platform system offers surgeons cruciate sacrificing and posterior stabilised femoral and tibial insert components (GVF™ and AOX™) and fixed all-poly and mobile bearing metal-backed patella components. The system also includes versions with cemented and cementless fixation, including POROCOAT® and DUOFIX™.
LCS can be used with High Performance Instruments specifically designed for use with the LCS knee system.
