We have reviewed 105 Liverpool Mark II knee replacements in 71 patients to assess survival and long-term results. Assessment was both clinical and radiological, using a modification of the British Orthopaedic Association knee function assessment chart, and analysis was by the survivorship method as advocated by Tew and Waugh. The follow-up period was between 13 and 113 months with 42 prostheses being in situ for over six years. Eight knees (7.6%) have been revised or arthrodesed because of infection or loosening, giving a cumulative success rate of 89% after seven years based on prosthesis survival alone. Of the remaining knees, 71.1% were either free of pain or caused only minimal pain. The cumulative success rate as judged by the stricter criteria of the prosthesis being in situ and causing little or no pain suggested a 50% survival between 73 and 96 months. Most patients (77.3%) were enthusiastic or satisfied with their results. Complications included deep wound infection (8.6%), and loosening which needed further surgery (11.4%).
