Objective Radiographic evaluate if there are signs of early loosening of the cementless total knee arthroplasties Amplitude-Score® (Amplitude Surgical SAS, Valence, France), checking with a follow-up time ranging from 2 to 5.75 years (mean of 3.75 years). Methods Descriptive longitudinal investigation of observational nature, non-comparative, through a static radiographic study of annual control, of a case series, in a single center, all operated on by the same surgeon (S.M.). All cementless arthroplasties that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria performed from March 2012 to October 2014 were included. Results Among the 46 cementless knee arthroplasties evaluated in 40 patients, no radiographic signs of early loosening were verified. Conclusion Cementless arthroplasty promotes optimal osteointegration, with no early release, and it is essential that the surgical technique is perfectly respected.
