Despite widespread acceptance of total knee replacement surgery's clinical effectiveness, variation persists in long-term functional outcome. Our aim was to quantify the relative contributions of physical and emotional coexisting conditions to the variation in improvement in 12-month post-total knee replacement physical function. Data from 165 patients who(More)
The role of anthropometric measurements in the prediction of hamstring autograft size remains unclear. In this internal review board - approved study, we evaluated medical records for patients receiving anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring autograft at our institution between 2006 and 2008.

Variation in patients' independent exercise and activity after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery may contribute to variable functional gains but have never been quantified. We pilot tested daily exercise logs and step activity monitors to quantify exercise and general home activity post-TKA. Patients successfully maintained logs and wore activity(More)
