Revision knee replacement for aseptic loosening

This 76 year old lady presented to us having had both her knees replaced 10 and 12 years ago. The knees had functioned well until about 2 years ago when she developed increasing pain and feelings of instability in both knees, particularly worse on the right side (the older knee). She underwent revision total knee replacement and was delighted with the results. She felt the pain in the knee had gone as soon as she woke from surgery and that the knee immediately felt more stable. (Oxford knee score before surgery 42, after surgery 21).
