Table 4 Pearson correlation partialized for type of implant between time to revision, cement adhesion, dimensions and roughness (Ra) of the tibial trays and reason for revision. *** p < 0.001, ** p < 0.01, * p < 0.05

From: Comparative retrieval analysis of a novel anatomic tibial tray backside: alterations in tibial component design and surface coating can increase cement adhesions and surface roughness
