Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the benefits and harms of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis in adults in terms of decreasing pain, increasing knee function, and postponing the need for a total knee arthroplasty.
