    Abstract

    All patients from our institution who underwent revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or were added to the waiting list for revision TKA between 2003 and 2013 were analysed to describe the timing and degree of excess early surgical mortality.
    We measured the excess surgical mortality at 90-days for the revision TKA group
    compared to the waiting list group as 0.37% (95% CI 0.10%-0.65%, p=0.075;).
    A larger sample size will be required to give a more accurate measurement and thus we encourage other authors with access to larger cohorts to use our methods to quantify excess mortality after revision TKA.
