Vanguard XP Total Knee System

Patient Risk Information

The total knee that preserves your ACL.

Vanguard XPIs the XP Preserving Knee right for you? Only your doctor can say for sure. But we can tell you this. In knees with a healthy, intact ACL, the XP Preserving Knee may be an option for patients requiring knee replacement.


What is the ACL? The Anterior Cruciate Ligament, most commonly known as the ACL, is crucial to knee movement and stability. When professional athletes damage their ACL, they get it repaired to help get them back in the game.

It's different with knee replacement. Most total knee replacements require surgeons to remove the ACL, even when it's still healthy. These knee implants rely on implant design to provide knee stability and have provided excellent results for many patients. But at Biomet, we think you should be able to keep your healthy ligaments whenever possible.

Our XP Preserving Knee enables surgeons to preserve healthy ligaments.


If you're considering total knee replacement, ask yourself one important question: Why have your ACL removed if you don't have to? The XP Preserving Knee allows your healthy ligaments to stay connected.
