Case Study
The article presents case studies which involve bilateral knee pain and pseudoachondroplasia with bilateral knee pain secondary to degenerative arthritis in the U.S. One case study refers to a 49-year-old man evaluated for bilateral knee pain and advice to undergo to a posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty with cement for both right and left knees. On the other case a 53-year-old woman with pseudoachondroplasia and advice for both knee replacement to remove the pain.
