Knee replacement failure symptoms include:
• Pain and swelling around the knee
• Instability and uncontrolled knee movements
• Failure to bond/adhere
• Revision surgery
In addition to the above symptoms, other problems that may be associated with knee replacement failure symptoms include bone loss, mobility issues, stiffness, swelling, soreness, and severe tissue damage. These things may not be repairable through revision surgery and could result in a lifetime of discomfort and limited mobility.
For such a common procedure, it’s unfortunate that we are seeing a high rate of failure in knee replacement systems. Many knee replacement systems are failing due to the tibial component not adhering to the cement, causing severe pain and instability.
