What to Expect in Short-term Outcomes of “Challenging” Patients with Computer-Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty?

4 pagesPublished: October 27, 2019

Abstract

This study investigated if CAOS TKA cases in higher risk patients would impact the outcomes of surgery. An average of 14-month postoperative outcomes on 58 TKAs from a prospective multicenter study were analyzed. The patients were grouped into challenging and standard case groups according to the criteria of age, BMI, comorbidities, and alignment deformity. Both groups demonstrated significant postoperative improvement in all outcome measures. Compared to the standard patients, the challenging patients achieved significantly higher improvement after TKA in KSS Knee score, while demonstrating the same level of improvements in all other outcome measures. Similarly, the two groups generally exhibit equivalent postoperative outcomes. The data demonstrated consistent postoperative results by CAOS TKA irrespective of patient conditions.
