Comparison of Function and Fit of Standard and Gender-Specific CR High-Flex Total Knee Prostheses
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 patients receiving either a standard posterior cruciate-retaining high-flexion (CR-flex) and gender-specific CR-flex total knee prostheses.
The design features of the gender-specific knee prostheses have been claimed to improve fit and function of total knee arthroplasty in women. 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 patients receiving either a standard posterior cruciate-retaining high-flexion (CR-flex) and gender-specific CR-flex total knee prostheses.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Thick triangular muscle in the SHOULDER whose function is to abduct, flex, and extend the arm. It is a common site of INTRAMUSCULAR INJECTIONS.
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. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
A person's concept of self as being male and masculine or female and feminine, or ambivalent, based in part on physical characteristics, parental responses, and psychological and social pressures. It is the internal experience of gender role.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
Sex Differentiation Disorders
Abnormalities in the development of the GONADS, the genital tracts, the external GENITALIA, and gender-specific behavior.
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 register...
