    Surgeons should maintain their routine follow-up protocol for patients who have undergone total knee arthroplasty. Signs and symptoms to consider for potential revisions are no different from those that might be reported by any patient having undergone primary total knee arthroplasty. The need for revision should be determined on a case-by-case basis following a detailed assessment of each patient’s clinical circumstances. Smith & Nephew is not recommending pro-active revision surgeries for patients implanted with this device.
