A video abstract is available with the new study by Hannon et al. in JBJS:
Cementless Versus Cemented Total Knee Arthroplasty: Concise Midterm Results of a Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial
The investigators previously reported the 2-year results of a prospective randomized controlled trial of cementless vs. cemented total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The implants were of the same design. Those results can be found in the 2019 JBJS report by Nam et al. Of the 141 patients included in the original study, 127 were in the new analysis.

As concluded by the authors, “At 6 years, there were no differences between cementless and cemented TKA implants of the same design in terms of survivorship, clinical, or radiographic outcomes.”
