In conclusion, what constitutes practice-changing evidence should be judiciously considered, with surgeons recognizing the intrinsic cognitive biases that can act as barriers to implementing prosthesis change, thereby creating an evidence-utilization incongruity and a resultant persistence of failed design innovations. A useful and pragmatic comparator of registry survivorship is a combination of the lowest-risk design options based on national data. On the basis of AOANJRR data, the lowest-risk TKR prosthesis is one with the following features: a cemented tibial implant; a minimally stabilized design; a fixed bearing, cross-linked polyethylene bearing surface; and patellar resurfacing.
