Abstract

© 2019, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli. Periprosthetic fracture after total knee arthroplasty presents a difficult complication for many orthopaedic surgeons. These fractures occur most frequently around the distal femur followed by the patella and then tibia. These fractures are frequently complicated by poor bone quality or compromised bone due to the presence of the implants. Surgical treatment is typically necessary and requires varied techniques of open fixation, intramedullary fixation, or revision arthroplasty. Outcomes of these injuries vary widely. This review aims to describe the epidemiology, classification, treatment options and outcomes for periprosthetic fractures following total knee arthroplasty.
