Whether biochemical markers of bone metabolism can be used in assessing the conditions of implant fixation is unknown. In this study, the serum levels of three bone markers were measured prospectively in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) to determine if patients with different fixation conditions of the tibial component showed any differences in the levels of the markers. The fixation of the tibial component in 40 knees (40 patients, 14 male and 26 female, average age 71 years… CONTINUE READING
