This is the first long-term (mean 11.6 years), prospective, matched-pair study (based on age, gender, BMI and UCLA scores) using MAVRIC (multi-acquisition variable-resonance image combination) magnetic resonance imaging to analyze reactive synovitis and osteolysis between rotating-platform posterior-stabilized (RP-PS), fixed-bearing metal-back (FB-MB), and all-polyethylene tibial (APT) in active patients (24 total, 8 in each group, mean age of 64 years, mean UCLA of 8.5) with identical femoral… CONTINUE READING
