Abstract

The essentially satisfactory results from the ICLH implant as used until 1975 were marred by examples of loosening and sinking of the tibial implant, by patellar pain of varying severity, by wear of the tibial implant caused by fragments of cement and by failure consistently to control the alignment of the leg. This report describes the methods now being used to overcome these complications and gives an account of the success so far achieved.
