In this study we present our experience with four generations of uncemented total knee arthroplasty (TKA) from Smith & Nephew: Tricon M, Tricon LS, Tricon II and Profix, focusing on the failure rates correlating with each design change. Beginning in 1984, 380 Tricon M, 435 Tricon LS, 305 Tricon 2 and 588 Profix were implanted by the senior author. The rate of revision for loosening was 1.1% for the Tricon M, 1.1% for the Tricon LS, 0.5% for the Tricon 2 with a HA coated tibial component, and 1.3% for the Profix TKA. No loosening of the femoral component was seen with the Tricon M, Tricon LS or Tricon 2, with no loosening seen of the tibial component with the Profix TKA. Regarding revision for wear, the incidence was 13.1% for the Tricon M, 6.6% for the Tricon LS, 2.3% for the Tricon 2, and 0% for the Profix. These results demonstrate that improvements in the design of uncemented components, including increased polyethylene thickness, improved polyethylene quality, and the introduction of hydroxyapatite coating, has improved the outcomes of uncemented TKA over time.

A moderator and panel of five experts led an interactive session in discussing five challenging and interesting patient case presentations involving surgery of the hip. The hip pathologies reviewed included failed open reduction internal fixation of subcapital femoral neck fracture, bilateral hip disease, evaluation of pain after metal-on-metal hip arthroplasty, avascular necrosis, aseptic loosening secondary to osteolysis and polyethylene wear, and management of ceramic femoral head fracture.

The management of osteoarthritis of the knee associated with patellar instability secondary to external tibial torsion > 45° is challenging. Patellofemoral biomechanics in these patients cannot be achieved by intra-articular correction using standard techniques of total knee replacement.

We reviewed seven patients (eight knees) with recurrent patellar dislocation and one with bilateral irreducible lateral dislocation who had undergone simultaneous total knee replacement and internal tibial derotational osteotomy. All had osteoarthritis and severe external tibial torsion. The mean follow-up was for 47.2 months (24 to 120).

The mean objective and functional Knee Society scores improved significantly (p = 0.0001) from 29.7 and 41.5 pre-operatively to 71.4 and 73.5 post-operatively, respectively. In all patients the osteotomies healed and patellar stability was restored.

Excessive external tibial torsion should be identified and corrected in patients with osteoarthritis and patellar instability. Simultaneous internal rotation osteotomy of the tibia and total knee replacement is a technically demanding but effective treatment for such patients.

1. Thirty-nine patients with synovial sarcoma have been reviewed.

2. The average rate of five-year survival was 45 per cent; of ten-year survival, 30 per cent; and of survival for more than ten years, 10 per cent.

3. The only important factor influencing the long-term results was the method of treatment; primary amputation was by far the best.
