Introduction: Total Knee Replacement is one of the most successful procedure over last 50 years,allowing patients to live more productive and active lives free of chronic pain.

With more joint replacements performed every year and procedures extending to treat younger more active patients, there is an increase in need of Revision Total Knee Replacement.

Over a period of time the Knee Replacement may fail due to a variety of reasons. When your Knee Replacement fails, then what you need is a second surgery i.e. Revision Total Knee Replacement where your doctor will remove some or entire part of original implant and replace them with new implant.

Revision Knee Replacement is a longer and more complex procedure that requires extensive planning and specialized implants and technology to achieve the desired goals.

We at Neem tree healthcare have vastly experienced surgeons trained extensively in revision surgery and routinely dealing in Revision Knee Replacement cases with satisfactory patient outcomes.

Why does a Total Knee Replacement fails:

1) Implant loosening and wear:

Usually fails due to high impact activities, excessive body weight and wear of plastic spacer.

In some cases particles wear off from plastic spacer and accumulate around the joint and initiate body immune response that unfortunately attacks healthy bones around the joints and leads to osteolysis

2) Infection:

Infection is the potential complication of any surgical procedure including Total Knee Replacement.

Infection may occur immediately afer surgery or even years later. The infected joints become stiff and swollen.

Revision in case of infection can be

  1. Debridement with implant retention and spacer exchange.
  2. Two stage revision (stage 1 involves removal of infected implant, debridement and insertion of antibiotic spacer. Stage 2 involves removal of antibiotic spacer and replacement with revision knee implant.

3) Instability:

It’s mainly due to injury to ligament /ligament insufficiency

  1. a) MCL/LCL injury or incompetence.
  2. b) Improperly balanced ligaments.
  3. c) Improperly balanced flexion gap.

Patient usually has complaint of recurrent swelling of joint and sense of giving away of knee.

4) Stiffness

Rarely, patients are unable to appropriately rehab a knee replacement after surgery and the knee will get stiff. If this is not treated within the first few months by physical therapy or a manipulation under anesthesia, the stiffness will persist. In this case, revision surgery may be necessary to remove the extensive scar tissue and/or change the components in the knee to improve the patient’s range of motion.

5) Peri Prosthetic Fractures

  1. a) Fracture around prosthetic implant.
  2. b) Treatment of the fracture depends upon location and type of fracture, bone quality and implant loosening.
