Several competing concepts of anteroposterior stabilization have been developed for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), with an overall great success despite some differences in terms of clinical or radiological outcomes. The CORIN KneeTec DeepDish TM is a novel mobile-bearing implant, stabilized with an ultra-congruent deep-dish poly- ethylene insert. The aim of the present study was to report clinical and radiological outcomes of a series of patients who received the KneeTec DeepDish TM after a follow-up of 12 months, and to compare them to those of a comparable series of patients who received the STRYKER Triathlon ® posterior- stabilized.

This was a retrospective comparative cohort study (level of evidence III). Demographic data, radiographic data and range of motion (ROM), as well the International Knee Society score and Oxford Knee Score were collected pre-operatively, and after a follow-up of 12 months.

106 KneeTec DeepDish TM and 80 Triathlon ® PS were evaluated at follow-up. Patients who received the KneeTec DeepDish TM had significant improvement in ROM, radiographic and clinical outcomes. There were no significant differences between the cohorts in terms of ROM, radiographic and clinical outcomes, as well as antero-posterior stability.

This study is the first to report the 12-month outcomes of the CORIN KneeTec DeepDish TM. The novel KneeTec DeepDish TM achieved comparable ROM, radiographic and clinical outcomes to the Triathlon ® PS after 12 months. Further studies will be necessary to evaluate the mid- to long-term outcomes of the KneeTec DeepDish TM .
