ABSTRACT

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the results of 50 total knee replacements performed at Military Hospital Kirkee, Pune, India, using Indian-manufactured prostheses, from November 2001 to November 2005. The study group consisted of 18 males and 28 females in the mean age of 63 years for osteoarthritis and 48 years for rheumatoid arthritis (RA): 41 knees of osteoarthritis and RA in 9 knees. The followup period was 6 months to 2 years, with a mean of 14 months. Good correction of deformities was achieved for all the knees. Postoperatively, there was improvement in Knee Society Score by 69 points for osteoarthritic knees and 65 points for rheumatoid knees. Excellent results were achieved in 88% of the cases. Average postoperative range of movements achieved was 90°. The results are comparable with those following use of far costlier imported prostheses.

Keywords: Osteoarthritis, Total condylar knee, Total knee replacement.
