Abstract: Aseptic loosening is the major failure mode in joint replacement surgery. The aim of the present study was to evaluate different fixation principles of the tibial component in cementless total knee replacement. An experimental study of different surface structures (ceramic and titanium) was performed. Cementless knee replacements with macrointerlock design were followed prospectively. New ceramic coated tibial component concepts were developed and compared with porous coated fixation. Implant st... more
