BACKGROUND Patellar mobilization technique during total knee arthroplasty has been debated, with some suggesting that lateral retraction, rather than eversion, of the patella may be beneficial. We hypothesized that patients with knees surgically exposed using patellar lateral retraction would have comparable outcomes with patients with knees surgically exposed using patellar eversion. METHODS After an a priori power analysis, 120 patients with degenerative arthrosis were prospectively… CONTINUE READING
