Haddad V Ranawat: The Medial Stabilized Knee: The “Post-Cam” Replacement

Orthopedics This Week—July 20, 2018

In a recent Orthopaedic Crossfire debate for Orthopedics This Week, HSS hip and knee surgeon Chitranjan S. Ranawat, MD, argued that the PFC Sigma Rotating Platform Posterior Stabilized (RPPS) design is successful for total knee replacements in young, active patients.

"At 10 years, radiographic analysis showed there were no failures. One hundred percent survivorship for mechanical failure; and 98% survivorship for all causes as 2 patients required scar excisions. So, we’re reporting 10-year results in young, active patients with a high quality of function including sporting activities. We attribute this to design features of the RPPS knee," said Dr. Ranawat during the debate at the Annual Current Concepts in Joint Replacement (CCJR) Winter meeting in Orlando, Florida.
