EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF OBESITY ON KNEE LOAD OVER TIME IN THOSE WHO HAVE UNDERGONE OPTIMAL SURGICAL RE-ALIGNMENT AFTER TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
Grant number: LP120100019 | Funding period: 2012 - 2016
This project investigates the impact of obesity on alignment and knee load over time in those who have undergone total knee replacement. This information is critical for understanding whether obesity results in increasing knee load after surgery which can lead to more rapid wearing of the knee surfaces and an earlier need for revision surgery.
