56 knees in 43 patients were randomized to undergo unicompartmental knee arthroplasty with either a cemented polyethylene monoblock or modular metal-backed tibial plateau implant (Accuris (Smith & Nephew)) . Results at over a 48 month trial period demonstrated that the monoblock implant was associated with s significantly greater rate of revision, particularly with respect to aseptic loosening.
