Summary of "Lower extremity gait kinematics outcomes after knee replacement demonstrate arthroplasty-specific differences between unicondylar and total knee arthroplasty: A pilot study."

The aim of the present study is to compare sagittal gait kinematics of ankle, knee and hip joints between subjects with unicondylar and total knee arthroplasty and age matched healthy controls. Since unicondylar knee replacement is a less invasive procedure, which more closely preserves knee joint anatomy, we hypothesized that one year post unicondylar knee arthroplasty patients would demonstrate more normal gait patterns than patients with total knee arthroplasty.
