Results of knee arthroplasty using the cemented press-fit condylar prosthesis. Based on a preliminary report.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Although retention of the posterior cruciate ligament in total knee arthroplasty remains controversial, several prostheses exist for this purpose and have been reported to have varying results. This study examines the short-term follow-up results of 107 total knee arthroplasties using a cemented press-fit condylar prosthesis. The mean follow-up period was 2.5 years, and the mean postoperative knee score was 96 points. Radiolucent lines were infrequently found and were incomplete. At short-term follow-up, no problems were identified with the cemented press-fit condylar prosthesis.
