Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement in Knee Society Knee Score [ Time Frame: Initial(one day before surgery), and at 3 months, 1 year, then annually after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in knee score will be compared with initial score, until mean follow up of 20 years.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement in the range of motion [ Time Frame: Initial(one day before surgery), and at 3 months, 1 year, then annually after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    change in the range of motion of knee joint will be compared with the initial value, until mean follow up of 20 years.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Zirconium Femoral Component
Oxidized zirconium femoral component of Genesis II TKR system is used.
Device: Zirconium (Zirconium Genesis II)
Oxidized Zirconium femoral component of Genesis II TKR system is used.
Other Name: Zirconium Genesis II
Active Comparator: Cobalt Chrome
Cobalt-Chromium Femoral component of Genesis II system is used.
Device: Cobalt-Chrome (Cobalt Chrome Genesis II)
Cobalt Chrome Femoral Component of Genesis II TKR system is used
Other Name: Cobalt Chrome Genesis II

Detailed Description:

Although it has been claimed that total knee arthroplasties with an oxidized zirconium femoral knee component had beneficial wear properties in vitro, there are conflicting clinical results. The purpose of the present study was to compare the clinical, subjective, and radiographic results as well as the weight, size and shape of polyethylene wear particles in the patients with an oxidized zirconium and a cobalt-chromium femoral knee component.
