There are greater than 600,000 major TKAs carried out yearly, with an annual development fee of 10 p.c. The principle targets of TKA are geared toward relieving ache, bettering the affected person’s high quality of life and restoring perform whereas optimizing implant longevity.

Nonetheless, a number of components together with surgical method, polyethylene put on, loosening, preoperative co-morbidities and ache ranges, have been proven to be related to failure after TKA.
