A Better Movement and a Lower Knee Stiffness After TKA

ORLANDO, Fla.  — According to Edwin P. Su, MD, patients who had to undergo revision total knee arthroplasty to treat a stiff knee proved to experience a better range of movement and a lower recurrence rate of stiffness.

“Knee stiffness is a common complication of total knee arthroplasty — it has many factors with some elements out of our control, and you can prevent knee stiffness by careful patient selection, detailed preoperative planning and surgical technique,” the expert said at the Current Concepts of Joint Replacement Meeting.
