Abstract
The purpose of this study was to determine objectively the outcome of total knee replacement in patients with ankylosed knees. There were 82 patients (99 knees) with ankylosed knees who underwent total knee replacement with a condylar constrained or a posterior stabilised prosthesis. Their mean age was 41.9 years (23 to 60) and the mean follow-up was for 8.9 years (6.6 to 14). Pre- and post-operative data included the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), the Knee Society (KS) and the Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis index (WOMAC) scores. The mean HSS, KS and WOMAC scores improved from 60, 53, and 79 pre-operatively to 81, 85, and 37 at follow-up. These improvements were statistically significant (p = 0.018, 0.001 and 0.014 respectively). The mean physical, social and emotional WOMAC scores also improved significantly (p = 0.032, p = 0.023 and p < 0.001 respectively). The mean satisfaction score was 8.5 (SD 1.5). Total knee replacement gives good mid-term results in patients with ankylosed knees. ©2008 British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery.
