Case report of orthopaedics

The annual number of total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) is gradually increasing. There are no strict rules for long-term follow-up after these arthroplasties. Therefore recommendations for clinical follow-up guidelines are disputed. Although a few case series have been published that indicate a small percentage of patients who require revision TKA for aseptic loosening or discomfort more than 15 years after their index surgery, no published research have yet documented these patients or the pathology present at the time of surgery in detail.
