Partial knee replacement

Nick Smith has published the clinical outcomes following partial knee replacement using the newer Oxford Cementless partial knee implant. Before this, there was minimal data other than from the designer centre on the outcomes. This research showed that the clinical scores were excellent (median Oxford score after surgery of 43 out of 50) and the early revision rate was low. The radiolucent lines (gaps between the implant and bone seen on x-rays) that are often seen on the cemented partial knee replacement, were rarely present on the newer cementless version.
