Abstract
Radiolucent lines (RLL) are commonly seen at the cement-bone interface of knee replacements, yet are poorly understood. Although thin RLL are not associated with implant loosening or poor patient outcome there is still concern that they indicate sub-optimal fixation. The primary study aim is to characterise the histology at the cement-tibia interface in Oxford unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR). The second aim is to assess whether a correlation exists between the presence of a RLL and the type of tissue that predominates at the interface.
