Abstract

Ceramic total knee arthroplasty is not popular at present. Though good experiences of total hip replacement showed that ceramic-ceramic coupling proved itself as a long-time implant. Knee endoprosthesis should be fixed in place with bone cement. The implant-cement interface affects significantly the mechanical situation of the total system and can cause loosening of the implant. As loosening of the implant is one of the most common reasons for failure of the prosthesis, measurements of the strength of these bonds are of great interest.
