Abstract

Trabecular metal cones are one option for treating osseous defects during TKA. A total of 83 consecutive TKAs utilizing cones with an average of 40 months follow-up were reviewed. There were 24 males and 59 females, with an average age of 69 years old. Four were complex primary and 79 were revision procedures. Of 83 patients, 10 (12%) required repeat revision surgery (8 infections, one periprosthetic fracture, one aseptic loosening) and overall, 37 of 83 patients (45%) experienced at least one complication. Of 73 unrevised knees, 72 (99%) demonstrated radiographic evidence of osseointegration. Despite a high complication rate in this population, trabecular metal cones represent an attractive option for managing bone loss in complex primary and revision TKA with a high rate of osseointegration.
