Revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is expected to increase owing to increased number of primary knee replacement surgery done annually. Aseptic loosening considered to be one of the commonest indications for revision surgery. One of the common challenges facing the surgeon during revision surgery is how to reconstruct bony defect to obtain optimum component alignment and robust fixation. Carful pre- and intra-operative assessment is crucial and understanding of different reconstruction options side by side with sound implant selection is crucial for successful surgery. Options for bone defect reconstruction include cement with screws, morselized allograft, bulk structural allograft, modular wedges, metal augments, porous metal cones and sleeves.
