Total Knee Replacement

case-study4DEC, 2014 :
NP 51 years old gentleman presented with deformed knee. Whenever the patients try to walk he would give way. As a result the patient almost became bedridden for the last 1 yr. Patient had a history of trauma 22 years back and uncontrolled diabetes. Because of the trauma the ligaments which give stability to the joint had been completely damaged. Thus he could not undergo conventional Total Knee Replacement. Previously such patients were advised a knee fusion in which patient is unable to move the knee. This patient underwent Left Total Knee Replacement with special implant (Rotating Hinge Knee). With this special implant we have relieved him of pain as well as given him a good range of movement of the knee. Patient is comfortable and walking pain free with full weight bearing.
