Improved fixation in cementless unicompartmental knee replacement: five-year results of a randomized controlled trial.
BACKGROUND: When used for appropriate indications, unicompartmental knee replacement is associated with fewer complications, faster recovery, and better function than total knee replacement. However, joint registries demonstrate a higher revision rate for unicompartmental knee replacement.
