BACKGROUND The optimum treatment method for large femoral bone defects during revision knee replacement has not been established. The purpose of the present study was to determine the initial results associated with the use of porous tantalum metaphyseal cones for the treatment of severe femoral bone loss at the time of revision total knee arthroplasty. METHODS Porous tantalum metaphyseal cones were implanted during twenty-four revision total knee replacements. The study group included… CONTINUE READING
