The plastic components of 280 retrieved unicondylar and total knee arthroplasties were studied. Wear was visually scored using a relative ranked data method. Although wear on the components was highly variable, several conclusions could be drawn regarding the nature and causes. Wear was associated more with the medial than the lateral condyle. Delamination was the most severe type of wear and occurred in short (< 5 year)-, medium (5-10 years)-, and long (> 10 years)-term retrievals. In the… CONTINUE READING
