The LCS COMPLETE RPS Knee System has higher rates of revision in Australia when the native patella is not resurfaced when compared to other unresurfaced PS implants. If the LCS COMPLETE RPS Knee System is implanted and the native patella is not resurfaced, the patient may experience patello-femoral pain, potentially requiring a secondary procedure.
