Quadriceps-sparing minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with side-cutting instruments has been proposed to limit surgical dissection without compromising the surgical outcome. We conducted a prospective, randomized study to compare the outcomes of quadriceps-sparing TKA with conventional medial parapatellar TKA, with two-year follow-up.
We hypothesize that the quadriceps-sparing arthrotomy would not outperform the conventional medial parapatellar arthrotomy in TKA, in terms of postoperative recovery of quadriceps muscle strength, alignment of the prosthetic knee, and clinical outcome.
Eighty primary TKAs in sixty patients of osteoarthritis constituted this study. Patients were randomly assigned to either quadriceps-sparing (QS, 40 knees) or medial parapatellar (MP, 40 knees) group. All surgeries were designed to set the prosthesis with thefemoral component alignment of 7º valgus and the tibial component alignment perpendicular to tibial shaft. Outcome variables included knee function defined by Hospital for Special Surgery knee score, quadriceps muscle strength measured by isokinetic dynamometer, pain indicated on visual analogue scale, range of motion, and post-operative alignment measured on plain radiograph.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Knee osteoarthritis is a major contributor to the global burden of disease. There is a need of reducing knee joint load and to improve balance and physical function among knee osteoarthritis patients.
Despite the effectiveness of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for osteoarthritis (OA), up to 20% will report knee pain 1-year after surgery. One possible reason is the development of neuropathic pain bef...
Our study analyzes the association between chemokine-ligand-2 (CCL2) serum concentrations at baseline and knee radiographic OA (knee-rOA), knee-rOA progression, individual radiographic features and kn...
Elective total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are effective options for the management of osteoarthritis that has not responded to conservative therapy, and they are increasi...
Knee joint distraction (KJD), a joint-preserving surgery for severe osteoarthritis (OA), provides clinical and structural improvement and postpones the need for total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This stu...
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.
