The study aim was an analysis of gender-specific outcome differences after implantation of the low-contact-stress (LCS) mobile-bearing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with a minimum follow-up of ten years. We retrospectively analysed 138 prostheses in 108 patients (82 women and 26 men) using our hospital database and a minimum follow-up of ten years (mean 14, range 11-23). Data was extracted with respect to quality of life, clinical outcome parameters [range of motion (ROM), Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score, visual analogue scale (VAS), Knee Society Score (KSS), and complications. At follow-up, we observed no statistically significant differences in all outcome parameters between female and male patients after LCS TKA, except for VAS score, which revealed no clinical relevance due to the low difference (1.53 vs 1.03, p = 0.043). Ten years after implantation of the LCS TKA, gender did not influence its beneficial outcome.
