This prospective study compares the outcome of 157 hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated tibial components with 164 cemented components in the ROCC Rotating Platform total knee replacement in 291 patients. The mean follow-up was 7.6 years (5.2 to 11). There were two revisions for loosening: one for an HA-coated and one for a cemented tibial component. Radiological evaluation demonstrated no radiolucent lines with the HA-coated femoral components. A total of three HA-coated tibial components exhibited radiolucent lines at three months post-operatively and these disappeared after three further months of protected weight-bearing. With HA-coated components the operating time was shorter (p < 0.006) and the radiological assessment of the tibial interface was more stable (p < 0.01). Using revision for aseptic loosening of the tibial component as the end point, the survival rates at nine years was identical for both groups at 99.1%. Our results suggest that HA-coated components perform at least as well as the same design with cemented components and compare favourably with those of series describing cemented or porous-coated knee replacements, suggesting that fixation of both components with hydroxyapatite is a reliable option in primary total knee replacement.
