Abstract

The Rotaglide knee arthroplasty has a highly congruent mobile meniscal bearing allowing both rotation and antero-posterior translation. We reviewed 137 consecutive primary arthroplasties in 120 patients at mean 11.1years (10-12.9) following surgery. No cases were lost to follow-up. Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) and American Knee Society (AKSS) scores were recorded at a review clinic. Radiographs were assessed using the Knee Society's roentgenographic evaluation system. Forty-two patients had died, leaving 78 patients (87 knees) available for review. Sixty-four patients (70 knees) were assessed at a clinic and in 14 (17 knees) clinical outcomes were obtained via telephone and their most recent radiographs were assessed. There were three cases of aseptic loosening and one deep infection requiring revision surgery. Two meniscal bearings were replaced with thicker inserts, one following bearing fracture and one following bearing dislocation. Survival at 11years for aseptic loosening was 97.6% (95% CI 94.3 to 1.0) and survival using re-operation for any cause was 95.3% (95% CI 90.8 to 99.8). The Rotaglide mobile-bearing total knee replacement demonstrates good survivorship and outcome scores at 11years following surgery.
