BACKGROUND Patellar resurfacing during total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcomes of a mobile-bearing TKA without patellar resurfacing. METHODS We assessed the outcomes in 503 patients (600 knees) who had cemented LCS (low contact stress) mobile bearing TKA without patellar resurfacing at a minimum follow-up of 10 years. Clinical outcome scores and radiological assessment were used. RESULTS Four knees were revised, two… CONTINUE READING
