Bicompartmental knee arthroplasty (BKA) addresses combined medial and patellofemoral compartment osteoarthritis, which is relatively common and has been proposed as a bridge between unicompartmental and total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

Case Presentation: This article presents the case report of a young active man treated with BKA after unsuccessful conservative therapy. Four years later, loosening with the fracture of the tibial baseplate was identified and the patient was revised to TKA. Light daily routine use, rather than high-impact sports, is therefore advised. Failures may also be related to the implant being an early generation and known to be technically complex, with too few implant sizes.
