  1. Overall cancer incidence not increased after prosthetic knee replacement : 14,551 patients followed for 66,622 person-years.

    Article - En anglais

    It is unknown whether patients as a consequence of prosthetic joint replacement are at a higher risk of developing cancer.

    We therefore analyzed cancer incidence following prosthetic knee replacement (TKR).

    The observed cancer incidence in 14,551 patients from the population-based Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Register who have undergone TKR because of osteoarthrosis (OA, n=10,120) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA, n=4431) were compared with the expected cancer incidence for a Swedish reference population.

    The cohort was followed for a total of 66,622 person-years.

    We followed 33% of the patients with OA and 59% of those with RA for more than 5 years.

    All patients who underwent TKR, whether for OA or for RA, had lower than expected total cancer incidence.

    We found a markedly low incidence of colorectal carcinoma, especially in patients with RA.

    Our results do not indicate an increased incidence of cancer following TKR.
