  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if there are any clinical or ROM differences in total knee arthroplasty with standard NexGen LPS prosthesis and NexGen LPS-Flex prosthesis.

Device: legacy posterior stabilized high-flexion (NexGen LPS-Flex)
Device: legacy posterior stabilized standard (NexGen LPS)
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement in Knee Society Knee Score [ Time Frame: 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in knee score will be compared with initial score, until mean follow up of 10.3 year


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement in the range of motion [ Time Frame: 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in the range of motion of knee joint will be compared with the initial value, until mean follow up of 10.3 years

Primary Completion Date: April 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: legacy posterior stabilized high-flexion
NexGen LPS-Flex total knee system
Device: legacy posterior stabilized high-flexion (NexGen LPS-Flex)
NexGen legacy posterior stabilized high-flexion (NexGen LPS-Flex) total knee system
Other Name: NexGen LPS-Flex
Experimental: legacy posterior stabilized standard
standard NexGen LPS prosthesis
Device: legacy posterior stabilized standard (NexGen LPS)
NexGen legacy posterior stabilized standard (NexGen LPS) total knee system
Other Name: NexGen LPS

Detailed Description:

We therefore hypothesized: (1) the survival of the NexGen LPS-Flex prosthesis is better than standard NexGen LPS prosthesis; (2) knee function and range of motion after clinical assessment will be better in the NexGen LPS-Flex group; and (3) the incidence of osteolysis will be lower in the NexGen LPS-Flex prosthesis than standard NexGTne LPS prosthesis.
