Preoperative predictors of knee range of motion during stair walking after total knee replacement

By Marietta van der Linden, Patricia Roche, P J Rowe and R. W. Nutton


Summary: Hierarchical Multiple Regression was performed on\ud the pre and postoperative measures of 56 patients with end-stage\ud osteoarthritis. Post-operative range of knee motion during stair\ud ascent and descent was predicted by pre-operative measures in\ud different domain blocks.\ud Conclusions: Pre-operative variables predicting post-operative\ud stair walking differ between stair ascent and descent. This has\ud consequences for the treatment of patients waiting for a total knee\ud replacement
