Cementless total knee arthroplasty: current concepts review

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

As the number of younger and more active patients treated with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) continues to increase, consideration of better fixation as a means of improving implant longevity is required. Cemented TKA remains the reference standard with the largest body of evidence and the longest follow-up to support its use. However, cementless TKA, may offer the opportunity of a more bone-sparing procedure with long lasting biological fixation to the bone. We undertook a review of the literature examining advances of cementless TKA and the reported results. Cite this article: Bone Joint J 2016;98-B:867-73.
