abstract

  • Each bearing surface in mobile-bearing implants was damaged to an extent similar to that in fixed-bearing implants, making the combined damage score higher than that for fixed-bearing implants. Mobile-bearing TKAs did not improve wear damage, providing another argument against the superiority of these implants over fixed-bearing implants.
