We performed an independent survivorship analysis on 208 Kinematic Condylar knee replacements with a minimum follow-up of ten years and a mean of 12 years.
Seven patients had been lost to follow-up.
At ten years the estimated survival was 92% (95% confidence limits 95% and 87%) and when stratified for diagnosis and thickness of polyethylene there was no statistical difference (p>0.05) in survivorship of knees with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
We conclude that the original design of the Kinematic Condylar knee replacement has a good record and that adequate evaluation of new designs of implant should be undertaken before they are widely introduced.
