The prevalence and characteristics of osteolysis were studied after 174 consecutive total knee arthroplasties, performed without cement; 16 per cent (twenty-seven) of the implants (in twenty-six patients) were identified as being associated with osteolysis.
The diagnosis was made an average of thirty-five months after the operation.
Fifteen (56 per cent) of the twenty-seven prostheses were revised ater an average of forty-five months in situ.
The remaining twelve implants were still in situ five years or more postoperatively.
