Smith & Nephew announced that it has launched its bi-cruciate retaining Journey II XR total knee arthroplasty in the U.S. and Japan at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons annual meeting this year in New Orleans.

Journey II XR is designed to combine partial knee replacement with the reproducible principles of TKA. The implant design is meant to be a more similar replication of the knee ataxy, and its tibial baseplate is designed for optimal fixation and fatigue strength. It also uses Smith & Nephew’s Verilast technology to give the knee replacement lasting survivorship, according to the company.

Journey II XR also helps eliminate concerns of bi-cruciate retaining knees through the introduction of enabling technologies like the Navio robot-assisted surgery and Visionaire adaptive guides for better outcomes.
