TKR - what is the best material for the joints? : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

Have been told that Hrome-alloy knee is the latest available - however, a colleague has recently had TKR at the Royal Free, and they used Titaium joint. Also have heard about Zirconium?

Can someone summerise the pro's and copns of these materials in use for TKR?
