Safety and Efficacy of a Rotating-Platform, High-Flexion Knee Design: Three- to Five-Year Follow-Up
Our hypothesis was that a high-flexion rotating-platform posterior stabilized (RP-PS) design could maximize range of motion (ROM) and improve deep-flexion activities. Eighty-seven consecutive patients...
