  • Causa
    Review of the australian orthopaedics association's national joint replacement registry (aoanjrr) data shows that the active femoral component used with (cemented or cementless) active knee tibial component has a higher revision rate than expected when compared to similar implants. a large number of the revisions were due to patella breakage. further analysis of the information held by aoanjrr indicates that use of the active knee total knee replacement prosthesis without patella resurfacing at the time of primary surgery may lead to increased risk of patella erosion and patella-femoral pain.
  • Acción
    The following advice is provided to surgeons who have used Active Total Knee Replacements to ensure continued safe use and proper patient management. For prospective patients: - It is strongly recommended that patella resurfacing is performed when the Active Total Knee replacement femoral components are used. - Use of the Active Femoral Component otherwise may proceed as normal. For patients who have received the Active Femoral Component without patella resurfacing: - Asymptomatic patients do not require surgical intervention as a result of this alert. - Particular consideration for the increased risk of patella erosion and patella-femoral pain will need to be paid to patients at follow-up visits. - The surgeon may consider more careful or frequent follow-up.
