Many factors influence the decision to implant a knee prosthesis with or without cement. Implant retrieval studies have demonstrated that bone ingrowth into porous-coated devices is possible even in older age groups. Early clinical follow-up observations suggest that cementless total knee arthroplasty can be successful in patients over 65 years of age, and(More)
The design features of an implant system can be crucial to the success of cementless total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The implant system described in this study incorporates anatomic features including an asymmetric tibial tray that is smaller laterally than medially, and a deep trochlear-grooved femoral component. Two hundred consecutive primary total knees(More)
