- Total knee replacement arthroplasty (TKA) has given the opportunity for
relief of pain and for improvement of function to patients with knees disabled by osteoarthritis
and rheumatoid arthritis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the interim
result of press-fit condylar (PFC) total knee replacement arthroplasty performed on
44 knees in 29 patients at Seoul National University Hospital from Jan 1988 to Oct
1989. There were three males and twenty-six females with the mean age at surgery
61.0 years. The mean follow-up period was 1 year 5 months. Twelve of twenty four
patients who had osteoarthritis underwent bilateral TKA. Three of four patients who
had rheumatoid arthritis underwent bilateral TKA. One patient had ankylosis of the
knee following pyogenic arthritis.
Good or excellent results were obtained in 39 (88%) knees. Pain relief was remarkable.
But, the increase of the range of motion was not signigficant although the flexion contractures
were corrected successively. Complications included mild to moderate joint effusion
in 6 knees and superficial infection in 2 knees.
