Abstract

BACKGROUND: Knee arthroplasty (KA) is recognized as an effective treatment of knee joint osteoarthritis and up to 90% of patients experience substantial pain relief. There has been no systematic review synthesizing the longitudinal changes in gait following KA. The aims of this systematic review were to determine the effects of KA on (i) frontal plane and (ii) sagittal plane kinematic and kinetic parameters during the stance phase of gait. METHODS: MEDLINE (PubMed), CINAHL, SPORTdiscus (EBSCO), and Cochrane Library (Wiley) were searched until April 10th, 2014. 1,765 articles were identified, of which 19 studies describing 3-dimensional gait analysis pre- and post-KA were included.
