- Patella retention versus replacement in total knee arthroplasty; functional and clinimetric aspects. van Hemert, Wouter L. W.; Senden, Rachel; Grimm, Bernd; Kester, Arnold D. M.; van Linde, Matthijs J. A.; Heyligers, Ide C. // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Feb2009, Vol. 129 Issue 2, p259
Whether to resurface the patella or not in total knee arthroplasty still remains undecided. Classical scores and questionnaires might not be responsive or demanding enough. This study used two accelerometer based systems to study the hypothesis whether performance based tests are able to detect...
