What would cause 3 knee replacements (all in the same knee) to fail within 5 years?


Posted by Bubbe

The first was a "uni" knee and the next 2 were total knee revisions.  Both of the total revisions failed within a year of their replacements.  All 3 were done by different surgeons, different hospitals, and the last being done @ Mayo in Minnesota.  Knee aspirations show no infection.  I am now faced with the FOURTH failure as X-RAYS show the knee is separating from the bone.  I am at a loss as to what to do.  I have NO HOPE for a 4th replacement working!
