The tibial alignment handles Cat# 6451-2-807 and 6541-2-808 are part of the Triathlon Knee Instruments set. The alignment handle is used after the tibial resection portion of a total knee arthroplasty procedure.

The implant will provide the new bearing surface of the knee, replacing the damaged joint.
