AbstractAIM AND OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the functional outcomes of Total Knee Arthroplasty.
METHODS: This is a prospective study of 20 cases who underwent Total knee replacement at Rajarajeshwari medical college and hospital, Bengaluru between June 2019 and May2021. Cases were taken according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Patients were evaluated using Knee Society Score at regular follow up. In our study we had 28 female patients and 13male patients. Indications were OA in 19, RA in 1.. The average follow-up period was 22weeks.
RESULTS : In our study, pre-operatively all of our patients had moderate to severe pain, post- operatively 20 cases had mild pain. Preoperative average Flexion of 76 degrees was increased to 95 degrees post operatively. All the 20 knees had poor knee score of <60 preoperatively, postoperatively 42 knees had excellent score (80- 100) and 17 knees with good score (70-79). 38 patients had poor functional score(<60) and 3 patients with fair functional score (60-69) pre-operatively. Postoperatively 21 patients had excellent score (80-100), 11 patients with good score (70-79), 6 patients had fair score (60-69) and 3 patients had poor score(<60).
CONCLUSION: Total knee arthroplasty is now a common and established surgical procedure. The functional outcome of the procedure is dramatic, durable, and satisfactory with high patient acceptance.
