- InterventionsTreatments are primary total knee arthroplasty of the Journey and Genesis II designs, both from Smith & Nephew company. A total knee arthroplasty is a joint replacement treamtent. It contains a lower leg component and an upper leg component and a polyethylene menisci part. The main difference between the two types is in the polyethylene part, which is more natural aligned in the Journey type. A total joint arthroplasty is applied once and remains in situ, so there is no dose relation or treatment time.
Primairy outcome is measured during polyclinical visits, where the patient is asked to flex the knee as much as possible. The maximum flexion is measured with a long leg goniometer.

Smith and Nephew

This is a randomised controlled trial to evaluate the difference between the High Performance and the Genesis II implants. The only design feature is a more natural tibial plateau alignment, which is believed to yield more maximal flexion.

Patients are randomised into two groups receiving either the High Performance or the Genesis II prosthesis. Preoperatively and postoperatively, clinical scores as well as functional assessment are obtained. Clinical scores are Knee Society Clinical Rating System and maximal flexion possibilities. Functional scores are the functional score of the Knee Society Clinical Rating System and the patellar score, and UCLA score.

Medical Ethical Committee approval has been obtained and the first patients have been included and randomized. First postoperative results are being collected. Final inclusions are planned in 2010.
