Background The purpose of this randomized controlled trial was to compare the performance of 3 total knee joint replacement (TKJR) designs 6 months after the surgery. Methods Patients were recruited between March 2015 and March 2018. Patients with osteoarthritis consented for TKJR were randomly allocated to a medial stabilized (MS), cruciate retaining (CR), or posterior stabilized (PS) design. Primary outcome measures were self-reported improvement in pain and function 6 months after TKJR, using the Oxford Knee Score. Secondary outcome measures were the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index, Veterans RAND 12-item Health Survey, Knee Society Score 2011, Timed Up and ..View full abstract
