The aim of this study was to report patient and clinical outcomes following robotic-assisted total knee arthroplasty (RA-TKA) at multiple institutions with a minimum two-year follow-up.


This was a multicentre registry study from October 2016 to June 2021 that included 861 primary RA-TKA patients who completed at least one pre- and postoperative patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) questionnaire, including Forgotten Joint Score (FJS), Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcomes Score for Joint Replacement (KOOS JR), and pain out of 100 points. The mean age was 67 years (35 to 86), 452 were male (53%), mean BMI was 31.5 kg/m2 (19 to 58), and 553 (64%) cemented and 308 (36%) cementless implants.

The compression produced by and the resistance to pullout of the 6.5 mm cannulated Herbert screw were compared with those of ASIF headed screws. The latter were tested with and without washers and in the following sizes: 4.5 mm cortical, 6.5 mm cancellous with a 16 mm threaded segment, and 6.5 mm cancellous with a 32 mm threaded segment. Polyurethane foam was used as a substitute for cancellous bone and ASIF artificial bone for corticocancellous bone. The compression produced by a cancellous lag screw with a washer was significantly greater than that produced by a Herbert screw of equivalent size (p < 0.05). When the screws were tested using the corticocancellous composite the ASIF cancellous screw without a washer produced significantly greater compression (p < 0.05); when used with a washer the difference was highly significant (p < 0.001). The dual pitch Herbert screw is not appropriate for the management of fractures in which compression is of greater importance than the need to avoid prominence of the screw head.
