Case Presentation

Surgery or a defective implant might cause knee replacement issues. One of the most severe consequences is loosening, and discomfort is the most prevalent. Bone fractures, instability, and major falls can all result from loosening. Almost every severe complication necessitates revision surgery.

Pain, poor joint function, knee instability, and swelling or stiffness in the knee joint are the most typical symptoms of a failed knee implant.

The location of the discomfort can be all over the knee (generalized) or in one specific spot (localized), and it can indicate loosening, wear, or infection. A limp, stiffness, or instability may occur from a loss in knee function. These symptoms and indicators may necessitate revision joint surgery in some patients.

Revision knee surgery using advanced procedures and materials frequently results in significant pain reduction and increased function. Revision knee replacement is a complex procedure that requires an experienced surgeon and proper preoperative preparation to obtain excellent results.
