Analysis of polyethylene thickness of tibial components in total knee replacement.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Excessive wear of the polyethylene bearing surfaces of tibial components has become an important factor in early failure of total knee arthroplasty. Inadequate thickness of the polyethylene insert is one cause of excessive wear, and various minimum thicknesses have been recommended in order to reduce contact stresses within the polyethylene. However, the true thicknesses of modular polyethylene tibial inserts typically are not stated accurately by the manufacturers in their produc...
