Abstract

Escalating incidence of periprosthetic fractures around the knee is attributable to ever-increasing indications of total knee arthroplasties (TKAs), the growing elderly population with knee prostheses, and the increased activity of patients with TKA. Periprosthetic fractures around TKA can involve the femur, tibia, or patella. Successful treatment of periprosthetic fractures about TKA is defined as the absence of knee pain, fracture union in less than 6 months, return to functional range of motion and a normal ambulatory status. Treatment options include conservative and operative methods. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
