It was the purpose of this study to use static and dynamic baropodometry pre- and postsurgery in patients submitted to knee replacement with a mobile bearing. Baropodometric analysis was accompanied by clinical and subjective evaluation. Data obtained from the baropodometer revealed considerable oscillations occurring between pre- and postsurgery. Static examination showed a significant increase in the percentage of loading on the side treated that was not observed in the dynamic evaluation. An analysis of the Knee Society score showed a considerable increase in values between pre- and postsurgery similar to how the interpretation of correlations presurgery revealed statistically significant values between function and length of step, between pre- and postsurgery data for scores for function and length of step and Knee Score. The short-term results obtained are encouraging but only a long-term follow-up will be able to confirm the use of evaluating total knee replacement.

Abstract

It was the purpose of this study to use static and dynamic baropodometry pre- and postsurgery in patients submitted to knee replacement with a mobile bearing. Baropodometric analysis was accompanied by clinical and subjective evaluation. Data obtained from the baropodometer revealed considerable oscillations occurring between pre- and postsurgery. Static examination showed a significant increase in the percentage of loading on the side treated that was not observed in the dynamic evaluation. An analysis of the Knee Society score showed a considerable increase in values between pre- and postsurgery similar to how the interpretation of correlations presurgery revealed statistically significant values between function and length of step, between pre- and postsurgery data for scores for function and length of step and Knee Score. The short-term results obtained are encouraging but only a long-term follow-up will be able to confirm the use of evaluating total knee replacement.
