Over a two-year period 104 patients had 130 knee arthroplasties performed with the total condylar prosthesis at the Hospital for Special Surgery. At a 10- to 12-year review 58 patients (74 knees) had survived and were available for detailed clinical and radiographic evaluation. Of these, 38 knees (51.3%) were rated as excellent and 27 (36.5%) good. There were three (4.0%) fair and six (8.2%) poor results. Five of the six had had revision operations. The success of this early pattern of prosthesis supports the continued use of methacrylate cement for knee arthroplasties.
