BACKGROUND: Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the appropriate treatment for degenerative pathology of the knee. Implant surveillance is mandatory to improve clinical results. We present the long-term results of a series of consecutive TKA Press Fit Condylar (J&J),cemented fixed bearing with selective patellar resurfacing in nonselected patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective case series,223 TKA were clinically and radiographically evaluated using the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) knee score and the Knee Society Roentgenographic Evaluation and Scoring System. RESULTS: There were 197 patients,with an average age of 68.4 years [95% confidence interval (CI) 52.7-84.1 years]; 49 arthroplasties were implanted in men (21.1%) and 184 (78.9%) in women. The average follow-up was approximately 13.5 years (162.1 months; 95% CI 132.3-191.9),and it was possible to evaluate 179 implants (76.8% of the implanted prosthesis) in 176 patients. The average HSS score increased from 61.5 (95% CI 60.4-62.7) to 89.4 (95% CI 87.7-.93.5) points. The cumulative average survival rate at 15 years (the endpoint being failure with revision) was 90.6% ± 2% standard deviation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the appropriate treatment for degenerative pathology of the knee. Implant surveillance is mandatory to improve clinical results. We present the long-term results of a series of consecutive TKA Press Fit Condylar (J&J),cemented fixed bearing with selective patellar resurfacing in nonselected patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective case series,223 TKA were clinically and radiographically evaluated using the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) knee score and the Knee Society Roentgenographic Evaluation and Scoring System. RESULTS: There were 197 patients,with an average age of 68.4 years [95% confidence interval (CI) 52.7-84.1 years]; 49 arthroplasties were implanted in men (21.1%) and 184 (78.9%) in women. The average follow-up was approximately 13.5 years (162.1 months; 95% CI 132.3-191.9),and it was possible to evaluate 179 implants (76.8% of the implanted prosthesis) in 176 patients. The average HSS score increased from 61.5 (95% CI 60.4-62.7) to 89.4 (95% CI 87.7-.93.5) points. The cumulative average survival rate at 15 years (the endpoint being failure with revision) was 90.6% ± 2% standard deviation. Resurfacing the patella did not make a difference in terms of implant survival. Progressive radiolucent lines were observed around 20 implants (14.3%); all were revised.
