This study tested if abnormal sagittal knee joint loading patterns after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were present pre-surgery, and if patterns with higher external knee flexion moments were related to the presence and severity of post-surgery anterior knee pain. Gait analysis and clinical evaluation were performed on 34 patients (41 arthroplasties) both before and 12-18 months after TKA, and on 20 healthy age-matched controls at matched velocities. The majority of knees with abnormal flexor… CONTINUE READING
