English term or phrase: Uni
Aparece varias veces en el texto, que trata de rodillas en valgo. El título aparece en castellano, pero todo el texto está en inglés (son resumenes de un congreso). El título es:

UNI para rodillas en valgo ¿es confiable?

Dentro del texto: (los *** son míos)

Of 1173 Genesis U.C.A. performed between 1991 and 2006, 977 were medial (83%) while 196 were lateral. Lateral **Un**i surgeons' opinion today is: "I feel safe", mostly "I doubt".

For the medial **Uni** the main risk is overcorrection and deterioration of the healthy compartment.

For the lateral **Uni** the risk is overlaxity with femoro-tibial subluxation.

For many of these patients there is excessive medial soft tissues laxity that contraindicates the **Uni** and requires a TKR.

The choice between a HTO [high tibia osteotomy] and a **Uni** depends on 1) Age; 2) etc...

The complication rate has been 3 cases for the lateral and 37 for the medial **Unis**. There was no secondary patello-femoral problem with the lateral **Uni**.

[Título] Principios básicos de rodilla unicompartimental con o sin la técnica de cirugía mínimamente invasiva

The Accuris *uni* knee system developed by Leo Pinczewski has been finalized to improve the accuracy of the Genesis condylar knee implant positioning.

Espero que todas estas frases les sirvan de contexto.

My understanding is that it is a part of the name/patent and, therefore, best not translated.

An option may also be to footnote it with explanation. Regards.
