All metal implants release metal ions because of corrosion. Total knee arthroplasty implants have large metal surface areas and therefore substantial potential for corrosion. It is planned to compare changes in serum levels of metal ions in patients after implantation of cemented unconstrained total knee arthroplasty covered with or without a passivating surface. Serum concentrations of chromium, cobalt, molybdenum and nickel will be analyzed and compared between the two groups, as well as with those of 130 control patients without implants.

To determine if there is a patient satisfaction preference of Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) vs Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty (UKA) in patients with bilateral knee osteoarthritis who u...
Late presentation of congenital patella dislocation (CPD) with advanced osteoarthritis is very rare. Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) provides a valid treatment option for adults with CPD who have absenc...
Knee osteoarthritis with valgus deformity presents a surgical challenge that must be solved during total knee arthroplasty (TKA). In some case whereby ligament imbalance is found, constrained implant ...
Full-Thickness Cartilage Defects Are Important Independent Predictive Factors for Progression to Total Knee Arthroplasty in Older Adults with Minimal to Moderate Osteoarthritis: Data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative.
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) severity on radiographs is not a reliable predictor of symptom severity. The purpose of this study was to determine whether full-thickness defects or OA grade are predictive o...
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY There is limited evidence on survival and complication rates in patients after total knee arthroplasty for posttraumatic osteoarthritis. The failure mechanisms leading to revision...
Total knee arthroplasty is a highly effective treatment for end-stage knee osteoarthritis, and it is usually performed under spinal or general anaesthesia with or without a surgical tourniquet. Some d...
Replacement of the knee joint.
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
Partial or total replacement of a joint.
Partial or total replacement of one or more FINGERS, or a FINGER JOINT.
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
