Description: Questions/purposes We evaluated registry survival of higher-cost “premium” knee and hip components compared to lower-priced standard components.
Conclusions In this time frame, premium implants did not demonstrate better survival than standard implants. Revision indications for TKA did not differ, and infection and instability remained contributors. Longer followup is necessary to demonstrate whether premium implants add value in younger patient groups.
