Abstract

Clinical and radiographic analyses were used to compare results obtained in 45 patients who underwent a Modular Porous-Coated Anatomic total knee arthroplasty with results in a similar group of 45 patients who underwent a Duracon total knee arthroplasty. The surgeries were consecutively performed over an 8-month period, and follow-up evaluation averaged 63 months. The two patient groups were similar with regard to the following variables: age, sex, diagnosis, height, weight, and preoperative and postoperative activity levels. Whereas both Duracon and Modular total knee arthroplasty prostheses yielded similar results approximately 5 years after surgery, the data suggest that Duracon appears to minimize patellofemoral complications.
