The Blauth prosthesis is a hinged total knee replacement. We have evaluated 422 consecutive primary total knee arthroplasties using this design in 330 patients with a maximum follow-up of 20 years (mean 6). The mean age of the patients at the time of operation was 70 years (29 to 87). Using endpoints of infection, removal because of aseptic loosening, removal for any cause, and the worst case as definitions of failure, the cumulative rates of survival at 20 years were 93.6%, 96.0%, 94.4% and 86… CONTINUE READING
