Özet

Background: Stemmed femoral implants are not universally used in revision total knee arthroplasty. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the re-revision rate would be greater for revision total knees performed without stemmed femoral implants compared with revision total knees performed with stemmed femoral implants.
