The mean ROM score of study group during preoperative stage was 2.40±1.25 and postoperative stage was 4.63±0.49. The difference between the ROM scores during pre and postoperative stage was statistically significant. The type of implant used in eth study group. Stryker implant was used in 73.3% and Link implant was used in 26.7% of the study group. In the study group, most (93.3%) of the patients had no complications.
