Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 600 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Safety and Performance of JOURNEY™ II Cruciate Retaining (CR) Total Knee System (TKS): A Retrospective, Multicenter Study
Actual Study Start Date : March 27, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 31, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 30, 2020

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Total knee arthroplasty with Journey II CR Total Knee System
    TKA with Journey II CR Total Knee System

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of adverse events reported per ISO 14155 guidelines [ Time Frame: 7 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Length of hospital stay for primary (index) surgery [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  2. Number of hospitalizations (admission for inpatient care) occurring after the hospitalization for the index surgery [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  3. Length of stay of hospitalizations (admission for inpatient care) occurring after the hospitalization for the index surgery [ Time Frame: upon occurence through 7 years of study duration ]
  4. Number of rehabilitation sessions [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  5. Duration of rehabilitation sessions in weeks [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  6. Number and type of outpatient visits [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  7. Number of re-operations [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  8. Quality of Life as measured by EQ-5D-3L score [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
    The EQ-5D-3L will be collected at each follow up visit. It consists of two pages - the EQ-5D descriptive system (page one) and the EQ visual analogue scale (EQ VAS) (page two). The descriptive system consists of five dimensions (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, anxiety/depression) each of which takes one of three responses. The responses record three levels of severity (no problems/some or moderate problems/extreme problems) within a particular dimension. The EQ VAS records the respondent's self-rated health on a vertical, visual analogue scale where the endpoints are labelled 'Best imaginable health state' and 'Worst imaginable health state'. This information can be used as a quantitative measure of health outcome as judged by the individual respondents.

  9. Patient Pain Level as measured by Knee Society Score (KSS) [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
    Combines an objective physician-derived component with a subjective subject-derived component. The objective section rates alignment, instability, joint motion and symptoms. Patient reported expectations and satisfaction questions evaluate pain relief, functional abilities, satisfaction and fulfillment of expectations using a subjective perspective. A functional score is derived from assessments of walking and standing, standard activities, advanced activities and discretionary activities.

  10. Number of days before return to work [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
  11. Number of technical difficulties encountered with the device [ Time Frame: 7 years ]
