Total Knee Arthroplasty: A challenging joint replacement
The satisfaction of patients with knee TEP depends primarily on pre-procedure expectations, extent of functional improvement, and pain progression.
Endoprosthetics, one of the greatest success stories of orthopedic surgery, has a new problem: exaggerated expectations on the part of patients, who often hope for complete recovery. "An implant can never completely replace the natural bone", emphasized Prof. Dr. med. med. Henning Windhagen, Director of the Orthopedic Clinic of the Hannover Medical School, at the press conference of the German Society for Endoprosthetics (AE) on the occasion of its annual congress in Hamburg. Patients should be properly selected and carefully informed, especially before implantation of a total knee replacement (TEP).
Proportion of younger patients is also increasing in knee TEPs
The implantation of artificial knee joints is one of the most common interventions in German hospitals and is increasing in absolute terms due to the demographic development of the population (1). According to data from the Federal Statistical Office, in 2016 a total of 187,000 received a knee TEP. Most of those treated were 55 to 84 years old. However, the proportion of younger patients has increased in recent years: around 8% of knee TEPs occur in patients under the age of 55 years.
However, not all patients are satisfied with the implants, especially those with an artificial knee joint. While the satisfaction of patients with hip joint TEP is 95%, it is only 80-85% in patients with knee TEP, according to Windhagen. "A knee prosthesis does not make every patient a happy person," said the AE-President.
It is not uncommon to complain about restricted mobility and pain, which has to do with the complex anatomy of this joint. "The knee joint is guided much more by soft parts than the hip joint," explained Windhagen, and the forms of movement are more complex. A knee is not a pure hinge joint, it rolls, slides and turns outward and inward. The femur and tibial bone remain in contact with the movement of the knee. Therefore, the implantation of an artificial knee is particularly demanding.
