- We performed a prospective, randomised study to compare the results and rates of complications of primary total knee replacement performed using a quadriceps-sparing technique or a standard arthrotomy in 120 patients who had bilateral total knee replacements carried out under the same anaesthetic. The clinical results, pain scales, ns surgical and hospital data, post-operative complications and radiological results were f compared. No significant differences were found between the two groups with respect to the blood loss, knee score, function score, pain scale, range of movement or radiological findings. In contrast, the operating time (p = 0.0001) and the tourniquet time (p < 0.0001) were significantly longer in the quadriceps-sparing group, as was the rate of complications (p = 0.0468). We therefore recommend the use of a standard arthrotomy with the shortest possible skin incision for total knee replacement. © 2007 British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery.
