Gene context of Knee Prosthesis

  • We concluded that use of a cemented total knee prosthesis in a patient who has rheumatoid arthritis and is less than forty years old provides a satisfactory result and that the component will not loosen after an average of five years [17].
  • Twelve subjects were implanted with Dual Bearing Knee prostheses (DBK, slot type: Finsbury Orthopaedics, Surrey, UK) [18].
  • METHODS: Three commercial knee prostheses (Omnifit, Genesis, and AMK) were used for testing under a compression load (3000 N) at flexion 0 degrees and 10 degrees [19].
  • The overall accuracy of FDG PET in evaluating orthopaedic hardware was 96.2% for hip prosthesis, 81% for knee prosthesis, and 100% in 15 patients with other orthopaedic devices [20].
  • A fixed-bearing total knee prosthesis (AMK) was implanted in one knee and a mobile-bearing total knee prosthesis (LCS) was implanted in the other knee in 116 patients [21].
