Abstract: Anterior knee pain in the patella femoral area after TKA has been addressed in a growing number of studies. Picetti et al. reported that anterior knee pain was present in 29% of the knees after TKA without patellar resurfacing. Unfortunately, many aspects of anterior knee pain after TKA have yet to be fully understood. This was a prospective randomized control study conducted in patients undergoing patelloplasty in TKA to compare the outcomes with and without coagulation diathermy. In the present study it was observed that 78 % patients with denervation had excellent satisfaction compared to 54 % with no denervation. 14 % patients with denervation had good satisfaction compared to 26 % with no denervation and 8 % patients with denervation had fair satisfaction compared to 20 % with no denervation.
