  • Patent number: 9839521
    Abstract: Knee implant systems and methods for implantation or use in a knee joint, are disclosed. A knee implant system can include at femoral component having a femur-contacting surface and an opposing articulation surface, and proximal, distal, anterior and posterior portion. The femoral component can include a medial condyle and a lateral condyle, where each of the condyles define respective distal-most points and have substantially equal widths. The width of each of the condyles can define respective condyle midpoints, where the distal-most points can be located laterally from the midpoints. The femoral component can include a trochlear groove that can define a distal-most sulcus point located halfway between the distal-most point of the medial condyle and the distal-most point of the lateral condyle.
