Polyethylene wear in unicondylar knee prostheses. 106 retrieved Marmor, PCA, and St Georg tibial components compared.

106 unicondylar knee replacement tibial components were retrieved and analyzed for the amount and type of polyethylene wear. Three different designs were retrieved which had essentially the same femorotibial conformity. Each design showed a characteristic failure pattern. The polyethylene of PCA tibial components showed serious delamination after only short… CONTINUE READING
