Publish Date: May 20, 2016

61 years female suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis underwent Left Total Knee Replacement 2008. She fell down 8 months back and since then she is unable to bear weight on operated leg (due to periprosthetic fracture)

Managing such cases is a challenge as there is severe bone loss associated with fracture. But with the availability of new implant like Rotating Hinge Knee and Trabecular Metal we  are now able to provide good function to the patient.

This patient underwent revision TKR done with RHK (Rotating Hinge Knee) and Trabecular metal cone for femoral bone loss and metallic wedge for tibial bone loss.

Patient is comfortable and walking pain free with full weight bearing.
