Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS)--development of a self-administered outcome measure.
The KOOS proved reliable, responsive to surgery and physical therapy, and valid for patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, and can be used to evaluate the course of knee injury and treatment outcome. Expand
OARSI recommendations for the management of hip and knee osteoarthritis, Part II: OARSI evidence-based, expert consensus guidelines.
Twenty-five carefully worded recommendations have been generated based on a critical appraisal of existing guidelines, a systematic review of research evidence and the consensus opinions of an international, multidisciplinary group of experts for the management of hip and knee osteoarthritis. Expand
The Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS): from joint injury to osteoarthritis
The KOOS is a valid, reliable and responsive self-administered instrument that can be used for short-term and long-term follow-up of several types of knee injury including osteoarthritis. Expand
The Long-term Consequence of Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Meniscus Injuries
The objectives of this study are to review the long-term consequences of injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament and menisci, the pathogenic mechanisms, and the causes of the considerable variability in outcome, and to strive toward a comparable level of quality of evidence in surgical treatment of knee injuries. Expand
Hip disability and osteoarthritis outcome score (HOOS) – validity and responsiveness in total hip replacement
The HOOS 2.0 appears to be useful for the evaluation of patient-relevant outcome after THR and is more responsive than the WOMAC LK 3.0. Expand
Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) ‐ validation of a Swedish version
Reliability, validity, and responsiveness of a Swedish version of the KOOS was assessed in 142 patients who underwent arthroscopy because of injury to the menisci, anterior cruciate ligament, or cartilage of the knee. Expand
High prevalence of knee osteoarthritis, pain, and functional limitations in female soccer players twelve years after anterior cruciate ligament injury.
A very high prevalence of radiographic knee OA, pain, and functional limitations was observed in young women who sustained an ACL tear during soccer play 12 years earlier, constituting a strong rationale to direct increased efforts toward prevention and better treatment of knee injury. Expand
OARSI recommendations for the management of hip and knee osteoarthritis: part III: Changes in evidence following systematic cumulative update of research published through January 2009.
OBJECTIVE To update evidence for available therapies in the treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA) and to examine whether research evidence has changed from 31 January 2006 to 31 January 2009.Expand
Pathogenesis and management of pain in osteoarthritis
A stepwise approach to the management of osteoarthritis is presented, and central pain sensitisation can also occur, and psychosocial factors are important determinants of pain severity. Expand
Treatment for acute anterior cruciate ligament tear: five year outcome of randomised trial
In this first high quality randomised controlled trial with minimal loss to follow-up, a strategy of rehabilitation plus early ACL reconstruction did not provide better results at five years than an initial rehabilitation with the option of having a later ACL reconstruction. Expand
