Prospective study showed TKA not detrimental to patient participation in sports

May 4, 2016

BARCELONA, Spain — Results of a study presented at European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy Congress, here, showed patients who participated in sports before total knee arthroplasty were able to participate in sports postoperatively and in some cases, patients were more active in sports after surgery.

Caroline Hepperger, MD, presented results of a prospective study she and her colleagues conducted to evaluate sports behavior preoperatively and postoperatively in 180 patients who underwent cemented cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Two surgeons operated on the patients, and all the patients had 24 months of follow-up.
