The Zimmer NexGen Precoat Pegged Tibial Plate is proven to have excellent long-term clinical results.1 The clinical performance of the NexGen Knee has been followed for 7 years in a prospective, open, multi-center outcomes study consisting of 11,257 patients and 13,250 cases collected by 243 surgeons throughout the United States. Annual radiographic follow-up to 5 years shows the incidence of radiolucency to be very infrequent for pegged tibial plates.
The Zimmer NexGen Precoat Pegged Tibial Plate does not invade/pressurize the tibial IM canal, minimizing the potential for fat emboli. Its tibial preparation approach conserves more bone versus traditional stemmed tibial plates, preserving bone stock if/when revision TKA is needed.
