problems that can occur with a revision total knee arthroplasty

Revision arthroplasties are technically more challenging than primary arthroplasty, and the outcome (longevity) of the revision is significantly shorter and attendant complications higher. One of the significant problems encountered during revision is loss of bone stock, irrespective of mode of fixation. Another problem is soft-tissue balance producing instability in the revised hip and altered mechanics in the revised knee.
