A total of 207 tibial components in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have been reviewed at a maximum of 10 years after replacement. Twelve knees developed aseptic femoral loosening and were reviewed separately from the remaining 195. All tibial components were fixed with cement confined to the proximal surface of the implant combined with an uncemented stem. In the 195 TKAs with well-fixed femoral components and (presumably) low wear, 15% of tibiae developed early-onset, nonprogressive partial… CONTINUE READING
