Before instituting this practice, we conducted a randomised controlled trial to confirm any benefits over splinting in extension. Five patients were recruited into the trial. 5 were excluded. The flexion group consisted of 49 patients who had their knee placed in 70 degrees of flexion over an inactive CPM machine for 24 h post operation. The extension group consisted of 46 patients who… CONTINUE READING
