Abstract

Objectives: In this study, we retrospectively compare the clinical results, range of knee motion and anterior knee pain in patients on whom we performed knee arthroplasty with and without patellar resurfacing. Thirty-eight patients were evaluated in the study. Knee Society scores, knee range of motion and anterior knee pain before and 12 months after surgery were detected. Patients were divided into two groups: resurfaced patellas and nonresurfaced patellas. There were 18 patients in the resurfaced group and 20 patients in the nonresurfaced group. Mean Knee Society score was 40.72±13.09 in the resur-faced group and 38.55±5.88 in the nonresurfaced group before surgery. Mean Knee Society score was 80.38±7.78 in the resur-faced group and 80.10±3.22 in the nonresurfaced group in the last control. Mean knee range of motion was 92.83±12.12 degrees in the resurfaced group and 91.05±10.10 degrees in the nonresurfaced group before surgery. Mean range of motion was 106.22±9.13 degrees in the resurfaced group and 97.25±8.50 degrees in the nonresurfaced group after surgery. There were twelve patients with anterior pain before surgery in the resur-faced group and 13 patients with anterior knee pain before surgery in the nonresurfaced group. After surgery, there was one patient with anterior pain in the resurfaced group and 9 patients with anterior knee pain in the nonresurfaced group. Anterior knee pain ratio was smaller in the resurfaced group than in the nonresurfaced group, and there was a significant difference in range of knee motion as a result of our study. We offered to resurface the patella.
