Objective: The main indication for medial Unicondylar Knee Arthroplasty (UKA) is Full-Thickness Cartilage Loss (FTCL) in the isolated medial compartment of the knee. However, controversial outcomes were reported in patients with Partial-Thickness Cartilage Loss (PTCL). The aim of this study is to compare PTCL and FTCL based on intraoperative findings in medial UKA in terms of functional outcomes and complication rates requiring reoperation and revision.
