Description: We asked whether the medially conforming ball-and-socket design differences would be associated with (1) improved ROM; and (2) improved scores compared to a conventional, fixed-bearing posterior-stabilized TKA.
Conclusions Both implant designs similarly relieved pain and improved function. The medially conforming ball-and-socket articulation provided better high-end function as reflected by the Total Knee Function Questionnaire.
