Abstract

The goal of the current study was to determine the 15-year outcomes of 62 patients who underwent a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) after a prior tibial plateau fracture. Mean age at the index surgical intervention was 63 years. At most recent followup, there were 11 revisions. The 15-year survivorship free from revision for aseptic loosening was 96%. In unrevised cases, the components were radiographically well-fixed. There were a total of 21 complications, 90% of which occurred at <2 years. While patients undergoing TKA after a tibial plateau fracture have an increased rate of complications, the 15-year results indicate that subsequent survivorship is similar to that of patients undergoing TKA for degenerative arthritis if early complications can be avoided.
