Knee Arthroplasty: Techniques and Complications

About this Research Topic

There have been numerous developments in implant design, surgical technique and management protocol in knee arthroplasty. Despite that, 10-30% patients are not satisfied after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). From a standard surgical technique and prostheses, surgeons have moved towards the less invasive procedure, partial joint replacement and bi-compartmental replacement. Still, there are many issues that have remained unanswered in TKA.

While the Asian patients prefer to do their regular daily activities (such as squatting, cross-legged sitting and sitting on the floor) after total knee arthroplasty, many western patients prefer to resume sporting activities. The complications, particularly prosthetic infection and instability, are still a serious issue, and three is no consensus on the management. It seems there are still many deficiencies in our understanding of knee arthroplasty.

This special issue focused on “Knee Arthroplasty” invites articles from researchers throughout the world to submit their original research and review related to knee arthroplasty. The research topic may be related to implant design, biomechanics, clinical outcome, complications, innovative surgical techniques and patient management strategies. All the submission will be peer-reviewed, and the editorial teams will try their best to provide an early decision.


Keywords: Knee, TKA, UKR, Replacement, Total Knee Replacement, Total Knee Arthroplasty, Unicompartmental Knee Replacement
