Fig. 2. Sequential plain lateral radiographs of the right knee after the initial total knee arthroplasty. No abnormal findings were seen 1 year postoperatively (A) and until 4 years postoperatively (B). A small radiolucent line was seen on the anterior aspect of the distal femur 7 years postoperatively (C). Ten years postoperatively, the distal anterior gap became wider than before. The anterior gap also became wider, and the posterior gap was seen (D). Osteolysis of the distal femur caused the implant to hang over the bone 11 years postoperatively (E).
