A prospective, randomized investigation compared early clinical outcomes of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using conventional or minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches (n = 44). Outcome measures included isometric quadriceps and hamstrings strength, quadriceps activation, functional performance, knee pain, active knee range of motion, muscle mass, the Short Form-36, and Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index, assessed preoperatively and 4 and 12 weeks after TKA.
