The current status of total knee replacement.


Total knee replacement has come of age, and long-term results are much better than those for total hip replacement. The designs of the late 1980s have addressed function, mobility, wear, and long-term survival for the young and active. Conventional, cemented knee arthroplasty is highly successful and well represented by the state of the art in the Kinemax total knee replacement prosthesis. This design also has the capability of treating the postseptic knee, the knee that requires extensive bone grafting, and, experimentally, the young, the active, or the overweight patient.
