UKR - How many revisions can you have?
« on: December 18, 2018, 03:22:21 AM »
Do many people have more than one revision for UKR? 

Is it the same as TKR - 2 strikes and you're out?

My fairly limited understanding that a worn out or failed uni replacement would potentially be revised to a TKR but it would clearly be a question for a revision surgeon based on your individual circumstances

There's an article here

There might be something in the learning portfolio if you have a search through the materials
