A Permanent Cure for Arthritis With Ceramic Total Knee Replacement

News Desk, News Nation 360 : For individuals experiencing end-stage knee arthritis, total knee replacement surgery has been the preferred surgical option for the past four years (wearing of the knee). Conventional Total Knee Replacement (TKR) is a well-established procedure with an 85–92% success rate, but it has a small percentage of unsatisfactory outcomes. The use of metal implants on plastic (polyethene) spacers in conventional total joint replacement (TKR) results in joint loosening because of the increased wear and tear caused by the metal implants rubbing against the polyethene spacer. Furthermore, 2 to 3 per cent of patients may experience hypersensitive reactions to metal, which can result in allergic reactions that resemble infections and loosen implants. Revision surgery is necessary for these reasons. Because of the major benefits ceramic implants provide, younger patients with end-stage knee arthritis find that a ceramic total knee replacement is a lifesaver. Ceramic TKR produces a variety of benefits by using ceramic implants that move against plastic (polyethene) spacers. Ceramic implants are predicted to last 45–50 years, whereas conventional metal implants are expected to last 20–25 years. This procedure has a success rate of over 95%. Due to these advantages, it is highly appropriate for younger patients with knee arthritis, restoring their range of motion, reducing pain, and providing greater comfort and a higher standard of living. Ceramic implants have a longer lifespan, are less prone to wear and tear, have a high scratch resistance, and are more biocompatible—that is, less likely to react negatively with the body. For all of these reasons, ceramic TKR allows the patient to participate in more demanding and intense activities and extends the implant's lifespan.
