    Both cemented and cementless total knee replacements have 10-year implant survivorship rates of greater than 95%, while cementless implants have higher revision and reoperation rates, according to published results.
    Researchers used the National Joint Registry to compare propensity score-matched cohorts of 22,477 cemented TKRs and 22,477 cementless TKRs. The researchers performed linear regression analysis to compare survivorship, revision, reoperation and mortality across different ages in both cohorts.
    According to the study, 10-year implant survivorship with revision as the end point...
