Case report of Arthroplasty
The number of total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) performed each year is gradually increasing. There are no hard and fast rules regarding long-term follow-up after these arthroplasties. As a result, recommendations for clinical follow-up guidelines are contentious. Although a few case series have been published that show a small percentage of patients needing revision TKA for aseptic loosening or discomfort more than 15 years after their index surgery, no published research has yet detailed these patients or the pathology present at the time of surgery.
