The purpose of this roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA) study was to evaluate the initial stability of cemented and cementless tibial components in vitro. Twenty tibia specimens were matched into two groups. In the first group, the tibial trays were cemented superficially and in the second group cementless fixation with stem and screws was performed. An axial load of 2000 N for 1000 and 10,000 cycles was applied onto the specimens and RSA was performed. The experimental results after 1000 cycles showed a higher migration with significant differences for the parameters maximum lift off (p = 0.011) and maximum total point motion (p = 0.002) in the cementless group. After 10,000 cycles, the migration in the cementless group increased significantly for maximum lift off (p = 0.043), maximum subsidence (p = 0.045) and maximum total point motion (p = 0.013). The higher migration rates in the cementless group demonstrate a lower initial mechanical stability of cementless tibial components which can cause an early component loosening.
