Ten year survival of navigation-assisted total knee arthroplasty.

3 pagesPublished: June 13, 2017


Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is considered a highly successful procedure. Survival rates of more than 90% after 10 years are generally reported. However, complications and revisions may still occur for many reasons, and some of them may be related to the operative technique. Computer assistance has been suggested to improve the accuracy of implantation of a TKA (Jenny 2005). Short term results are still controversial (Roberts 2015). However, few long term results have been documented (Song 2016). The present study was designed to evaluate the long-term (more than 10 years) results of a TKA which was routinely implanted with help of a non-image based navigation system. The 5- to 8- year of this specific TKA has already been documented (Jenny 2013).
The hypothesis of this study will be that the 10 year survival rate of this TKA will be improved in comparison to historical papers when analyzing survival rates and knee function as evaluated by the Knee Society Score (KSS).
