The preoperative functional activities score was positively correlated with the postoperative symptoms, functional activities, and objective score. Abstract Background Patient satisfaction has been recognized as an important evaluation of total knee arthroplasty TKA. Recently, outcome knee society score pdf download quality-of-life measures have shifted toward a greater emphasis on patient-based evaluation.

Hypothesis The French version of the new KSS score is a consistent, feasible, reliable and discriminating score.

The present study aimed to elucidate any direct correlation between these two knee society score pdf download systems. To analyze the reproducibility of the “American Knee Society Score” AKSS scale, and determine its measurement, in order to make it useful for the evaluation of patients with doownload or who have undergone total knee arthroplasty.

Results Due to missing data, two cases were eliminated. Recommended articles Citing articles 0.

Keywords Total knee arthroplasty. Forty-nine consecutive patients 79 knees with a mean age of After the new KSS score was translated and back-translated, it was compared to three other validated instruments Scoree, AMIQUAL and SF to determine construct validity, discriminating power, feasibility in terms of response rate and existence of floor or ceiling effect, internal consistency with Chronbach’s alpha and reliability based on reproducibility and sensitivity to change responsiveness.

The following questions were knee society score pdf download using the KSS: After a two week break, a third additional interview with AKSS was applied examiner 2.

Level of proof, type of study Level III.

In Novemberthe Knee Society published its new KSS score to evaluate objective clinical data and also knee society score pdf download expectations, satisfaction and knee function during various physical activities before and after total knee arthroplasty TKA. Due to missing data, two cases were eliminated. Under an Elsevier user license. Search our Database of Scientific Publications and Authors.

We selected 58 patients with a mean age of Results The majority of categories showed significant improvements after TKA. Traditionally, the results of revision total knee downlooad have been determined with use of surgeon-based measures such as the Knee Society rating system.

The purposes of this study knee society score pdf download 1 to determine whether the high-flexion knee score eliminates the ceiling effect, 2 to assess the validity and responsiveness of the high-flexion knee score, zociety 3 to determine whether the high-flexion knee score can aid in differentiation of the knee status of patients at the ceiling level.

After thirty wociety the same patients answered only the AKSS. We therefore developed a new scoring system for patients with higher levels of flexion to eliminate ceiling effects knee society score pdf download with current systems.

Patient satisfaction has been recognized as an important evaluation of total knee arthroplasty TKA. These results confirm that the French version of the new KSS score is reliable, feasible, discriminating, consistent and responsive.

Patients and methods Eighty patients with knee osteoarthritis were recruited from two centers: Socity Introduction In Novemberthe Knee Society knew its new KSS score to evaluate objective clinical data and also patient expectations, satisfaction and knee function during various physical activities before and after total knee arthroplasty TKA.

The more functionally active patients before receiving Knee society score pdf download acquired more successful objective and functional outcomes, and the postoperative knee condition was directly influenced by each subscale of the KSS. Patients were recruited knee society score pdf download part of a prospective observational study of the outcomes of primary total knee arthroplasty for the treatment of osteoarthritis in four centers in the United States, six centers in the United Kingdom, and two centers in Australia.

The majority of categories showed significant improvements after TKA. Eighty patients with knee osteoarthritis were recruited from two centers: Epub Sep 3. Discussion Knee society score pdf download results scofe that the French version of the new KSS score is reliable, feasible, discriminating, consistent and responsive. However, very few reports have downloadd subjective knee society score pdf download before TKA using the KSS, as the scoring system is still relatively new.

We undertook the French cross-cultural adaptation of this scoring system according to current recommendations. Recommended articles Citing articles 0. A new high-flexion knee scoring system to eliminate the ceiling effect. Independent research assistants at each site collected the Knee Society clinical data.
