Osteosynthesis of periprosthetic fractures following total knee arthroplasty: a challenging surgery

Abstract

The incidence of periprosthetic fractures after total knee arthroplasty appears to be on the rise as a result of the increasing longevity of patients with knee prosthetic implants. The most common pattern involves the supracondylar area of the distal femur above a well-fixed prosthesis. If a periprosthetic fracture occurs, an appropriate treatment method should be selected considering different factors.
