Similar wear rate and migration in mobile and fixed bearing TKR prostheses at 10 years

Dr. B.G. Pijls discusses differences in long-term fixation between mobile-bearing and fixed-bearing knee prostheses at ten to 12 years.
33 patients (42 knees) with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis were randomized to receive a mobile bearing (MB) or a fixed bearing (FB) total knee replacement (TKR). Over 10 to 12 years, radiostereometric analysis (RSA) indicated that there was greater lateral translation, subsidence and posterior tilt in the FB prosthesis. However, there was greater internal rotation in the MB prosthesis. The...
