Abstract: Background: Many comparative articles studied mobile-bearing (MB) and fixed-bearing (FB) total knee arthroplasties (TKAs). Meta-analyses found no difference in survival or biomechanical outcome. This study aimed to compare long-term clinical results between fixed-bearing (FB) and mobile-bearing (MB) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) as well as patients' adaptation to their artificial joints.Method: TKAs performed with the same surgical protocol divided into categories according to the insert design preferred. 70 MB design TKAs were compared with 70 FB design TKAs utilizing propensity matching for parameters; gender, age, body mass index, coronal plane deformity, range of motion (ROM) and appropriateness criteria. Forgotten Joint Score-12 (FJS-12) was used to assess patients' ability to forget their artificial joints in daily life.Results: Patients had a mean follow-up of 15.6 (+/- 2.2) years. No difference was observed between groups for post-operative ROM, WOMAC, Knee Society Knee and Function Scores. The FJS-12 in the MB and FB groups were 66.1 and 72.8, respectively (P = 0.026). There was no significant difference in survival between both designs.Conclusion: This study suggests that in TKA, joint awareness is higher in MB compared to FB design. FJS-12 appears to be a sensitive measuring tool when comparing two designs and should be implemented in long-term follow-up.(c) 2023 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
