Patients with no knee pathology have less knee symptoms vs T
Patients who underwent knee arthroplasty experienced a higher presence of knee symptoms compared with patients who did not have a diagnosis of knee pathology, according to results.

An independent, third-party survey center administered a questionnaire to assess patient satisfaction and function in 1,456 patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA), 476 patients undergoing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and 409 patients with no prior knee interventions or major knee problems that limited their activity. Researchers compared the three groups using multivariate logistic regression analyses accounting for differences in demographic variables.

While patients in the control group reported a high incidence of pain, a limp, stiffness and noise in their knee, results showed the likelihood of reported noise, swelling, stiffness and difficulty getting in and out of a chair increased after TKA. Similarly, researchers noted an increase in the likelihood of swelling, stiffness and difficulty getting in and out of a chair among patients who underwent UKA vs. controls. – by Casey Tingle
