Abstract

Abstract The clinical and radiographic outcomes of 50 consecutive revision total knee arthroplasties in 47 patients, placed with metaphyseal cemented femoral and tibial components with press-fit cementless stems, were reviewed at 36-month average follow-up. Revision was performed for aseptic loosening (11/50), infection (17/50), periprosthetic fracture (8/50), component failure (6/50), instability (6/50), and malalignment (2/50). The press-fit cementless stems were 80 to 160 mm in length and tightly contacted the endosteum of the metadiaphyseal areas. Four (9%) knees were re-revised for infection, zero for aseptic loosening. The average modified Hospital for Special Surgery knee score improved from 49 to 87. One patient (2%) reported thigh pain, and 1 reported leg pain. Metaphyseal cemented revision total knee components with press-fit cementless femoral and tibial stems were not associated with significant thigh and leg pain.
