The Oxford Knee Score helped investigators identify patient satisfaction after total knee arthroplasty at 12 months and 24 months postoperatively based on these study results.
The investigators studied 608 patients who underwent elective primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) between 2003 and 2007 and completed a preoperative Oxford Knee Score (OKS) questionnaire about knee pain and function during the most recent 4-week period. They then readministered the OKS questionnaire at 12 months and 24 months following surgery. In all, 365 patients completed the three questionnaires about their satisfaction with TKA.
