Gait of 11 patients with bilateral paired posterior cruciate-retaining and cruciate-sacrificing total knee arthroplasties (TKA) was studied preoperatively and two years postoperatively on walking and stair climbing. Five-year clinical and roentgenographic examinations were included in the study. Differences between the two prostheses were noted both in level walking and in stair climbing. On level walking, cruciate-sacrificed TKA had more flexion in loading response and increased flexion and… CONTINUE READING
