Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Due to demographic transition an increasing number of primary knee arthroplasty is expected. A consequence is a rise in frequency in revision knee arthroplasty. Rotating hinge prostheses are a development of former hinge prostheses, due to changes in implant design the outcome of modern rotating hinge implants clearly improved in comparison to former models. Interpretation of outcome in present literature is difficult due to the small number of cases and the heterogeneous indications. Nevertheless the use of rotating hinge knee prostheses in primary and revision arthroplasty is associated with good clinical outcomes, when indicated appropriately.
