The purpose of this systematic review was to analyse the clinical and functional outcome, progression of OA and prosthesis survivorship after unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in patients with chondrocalcinosis compared to patients without CC.

A systematic review of the literature was performed using the “Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis” (PRISMA) guidelines. Articles which reported the outcome and survival rates of prosthesis after TKA or UKA in patients with CC were included.

Results:
--A total of 3718 patient knees were included in 8 selected publications, with a median sample sizes of 234 knees and 954 knees for publications including UKA and TKA, respectively.

--At time of surgery, the mean age was 69 years and the prevalence for CC ranged from 12.6 to 36%.

--Chondrocalcinosis did not significantly influence the functional and clinical outcome, the implant survival as well as the radiologic progression of OA disease after UKA and TKA.

Conclusively, the existence of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystals in tissue samples, synovial fluid, or preoperative radiograph proof of calcifications had no effect on postoperative functional and activity ratings. If the prosthesis was a UKA or a TKA, it had no impact on the rate of prosthesis survival. The impact of a subclinical type of chondrocalcinosis may not be clinically relevant in the context of arthroplasty, according to this report.
