This retrospective study of 208 (204 patients) total knee arthroplasties evaluated the incidence of patellar clunk syndrome for two high-flex posterior stabilized knee prostheses; a high-flex fixed bearing prosthesis and a high-flex mobile bearing prosthesis. Patients were followed for up to two years and were evaluated for patellar clunk and component position. Knees receiving the mobile bearing had a significantly higher (p < 0.001) incidence of patellar clunk (15%) than knees receiving the fixed bearing (0%). There was a significantly higher incidence of patellar clunk in males (34.1%; p < 0.01) compared to females (8.6%). Fibrous nodules were treated surgically in 11 of the knees with patellar clunk. The design of this particular mobile bearing knee seems to contribute to patellar clunk syndrome.
