Comparing Clinical Outcome of 2 Different Total Knee Prostheses: Nexgen LPS-Flex Versus AGC
A randomized blinded study is conducted comparing 2 different knee prostheses. Range of motion (ROM), pain, feel of prosthesis, satisfaction and ability to do daily activities are registered at intervals up to one year postop, where patients are informed on which prosthesis they received.
We want to:
- determine whether an increased ROM is achieved with a high-flex knee compared to a standard knee
- and if so, does it matter
100 patients operated on with unilateral TKR are included and randomized to either prostheses.
Patients operated on with bilateral simultaneous TKR receive one of each prostheses but are blinded to which prosthesis is on which side. They have gait analyses performed preop and at intervals up to one year.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage.

Replacement of the knee joint.
A SYNOVIAL CYST located in the back of the knee, in the popliteal space arising from the semimembranous bursa or the knee joint.
The purpose of this study is to test for significant differences in functional outcomes, specifically pre-operative ROM and post-operative ROM obtained by using a NexGen CR versus a NexGen...
The purpose of this trial is to study potential differences between two prostheses, including: "feel of prosthesis" (i.e., how natural does the prosthesis feel), range of motion (ROM), pai...
comparative trial of placebo versus flex-a-new (a food supplement) containing glucosamine an chondroitin sulfate for the symptom modification is knee osteoarthritis
The purpose of this prospective, randomized study was to compare pain, functional outcome and ranges of motion of the knees in patients receiving either a standard posterior cruciate-retai...
The purpose of this prospective, randomized study was to compare functional outcome, radiographic results, range of motion, patients satisfaction, and fit of the femoral component in patie...
PURPOSE: We evaluated 3- to 6-year clinical and radiological follow-up results after NexGen((R)) LPS-flex total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS: A retrospective evaluation was undertaken of 218 knees...
Unloading valgus knee braces may be more effective than knee sleeves, to improve pain and disability for medial knee osteoarthritis, but have more adverse effects. A lateral-wedge insole could reduce...
We present the first ever reported case of bilateral total knee replacements in a congenital amputee with bilateral fibular deficiency. A 60year old woman with bilateral fibular hemimelia presented wi...
Osteoarthritis is a disease that progresses over time and culminates in the destruction of articular cartilage and joints. Thus, with an increasing elderly population the treatment of knee osteoarthri...
OBJECTIVE:: To examine the association of concurrent low back pain (LBP), and other musculoskeletal pain comorbidity, with knee pain severity in symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS:: 1389 in...
