Abstract

Twenty years of experience with modern total knee arthroplasty have shown certain designs of prosthesis to be extremely successful. Modifications have been made to earlier designs in an attempt to improve fixation and decrease the potential for excessive wear, but new problems sometimes develop. Based on this experience, certain principles become evident which should guide surgeon/designers in the development of the next generation of knee replacement implants.
