Tibial tubercle osteotomy was used in the surgical exposure of 67 knees in 64 patients undergoing revision total knee arthroplasty. The clinical and radiographic results were reviewed retrospectively. The mean follow-up time was 30 months (range, 5-60 months). Knee Society scores (KSS) confirmed good or excellent results in 87% of the knees, and the mean KSS was 86. The procedure was particularly effective in 2-stage exchanges for infected total knee arthroplasty, in which infection was eradicated in 9 of 10 cases, with a mean KSS of 82. In this series, no patellofemoral complications, no component malalignments, and no avulsions of the patellar tendon occurred. Serious complications directly related to the tibial tubercle osteotomy occurred in 5 patients (7%).
