Although factors predicting outcomes in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have been studied, there are no such studies for modern PFA. This retrospective study reports the midterm clinical and radiological outcomes and survivorship of PFA, investigating the risk factors associated with poorer outcomes and higher revision rates.
