The use of computer-assistance during surgery has great advantages because many of the traditional, space occupying instruments that are used with traditional surgery are completely eliminated_ Instead, a narrow digitizing probe can be slid into critical areas to measure important factors such as joint surface position and rotation.
Methodology: This was a hospital-based prospective observational study which was done to analyze the functional outcome of Cemented Total Knee Arthroplasty for primary osteoarthritis. 30 patients who consecutively consented and underwent Posterior Cruciate Sacrificing Cemented Total Knee Arthroplasty were assessed clinically and functionally using Knee Society scores. Results: The difference between the means’s of pre-op KCS and post-op KCS was 67.35 (64.56 to 70.14, 95% CI). The P Value was significant (<0.001) when the pre-op and post-op Knee Clinical Scores were compared. The difference between the mean's of pre - op KFS and post - op KFS was 45.40 (41.24 to 49.56, 95% C1). The P value was significant (<0.001) when the pre - op and post — op Knee Functional Scores were compared.
Conclusion: Cemented Total Knee Arthroplasty improves the functional ability of the patient and the ability of the patient to get back to pre-disease state, which is to have a pain free mobile joint, as reflected by the improvement in the post-op Knee Clinical Score and Knee Functional Score.
