Micromotion of Uncemented Freeman-Samuelson Knee Prostheses: A Roentgen Stereophotogrammetric Analysis
One of the most important problems in knee arthroplasty is late mechanical loosening of the tibial component. In order to avoid some of the disadvantages which are associated with using bone cement, various attempts have been made to bond prosthetic components to bone without cement. The early clinical results have been good but still very little is known about the reliability of this method over a long period of time.
