Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) Cemented Versus Cementless
The aim of the study is to analyse and to compare the quality of fixation of a femoral implant with or without cement.
One hundred thirty patients will be operated on and included with 2 groups, the first one with TKA all cemented and the second one with TKA with a cementless femoral implant. The study criteria include the IKS (International Knee Society) score and the analysis of a radiolucent line at the femur.
Patients will be reviewed at 2, 6 and 12 months.
