Abstract

We performed a survival analysis on 354 cemented primary press-fit condylar total knee arthroplasties in 277 patients with prospective follow-up (mean, 8.8 years; range, 0.3-16.9 years). The number of patients alive reaching 15 years at follow-up for survival analysis was 15. The cumulative survival rate at 15 years was 81.7% (95% confidence interval, 72.1%-88.5%), using revision for all causes as our end point. Indications for revision in our patient group were aseptic loosening 4.5%, infection 2.3%, and exchange of polyethylene insert 1.1%. Our results indicate that the cemented press-fit condylar total knee arthroplasty has a good long-term survival, at 15 years, based on revision as the end point. © 2008 Elsevier Inc.
