Predicting dissatisfaction following total knee replacement - a prospective study of 1217 patients in 2010
C. E. H. Scott, MRCSEd, BSc, Specialist Registrar in Trauma and Orthopaedics; C. R. Howie, FRCSEd(Orth), FRCS(Glas), Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon; D. MacDonald, BA(Hons), Research Associate and L. C. Biant, FRCSEd(Trauma & Orth), MS, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Department of Orthopaedics, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, UK.

Patient expectation, pain relief and the functional outcome appear the most significant predictors of satisfaction in the literature

From 2006 to 2008, 1290 consecutive TKRs were performed at our institution. All were performed or supervised by 13 consultant surgeons. Three different cruciate-retaining implants were used according to surgeon preference: the PFC Sigma, the Kinemax and the Triathlon. The patella was not routinely resurfaced. All patients followed a standardised post-operative programme of rehabilitation.

The patient satisfaction rate of 81.4% at 12 months in this study is comparable to other studies
