A prospective, randomized, blinded study was designed to investigate the impact of patellar eversion on early quadriceps function after total knee arthroplasty. One hundred twenty-two consecutive patients were randomized by 2 surgeons to receive one of 2 different surgical approaches. Surgeon A randomized patients to receive a mid-vastus split with or without patellar eversion. Surgeon B randomized patients to receive a median parapatellar arthrotomy or a mid-vastus split, both without patellar… CONTINUE READING
