BACKGROUND An analysis of contemporary total knee arthroplasty reveals that, on the average, patients rarely flex the knee beyond 120 degrees. The biomechanical mechanisms that inhibit further flexion after total knee arthroplasty are unknown. The objective of the present study was to investigate the capability of a single design of a fixed-bearing, high-flexion posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty system (LPS-Flex) to restore the range of flexion to that of the intact knee.
