Background Controversy concerning resurfacing the patella when performing a TKA Patellofemoral joint was an afterthought in early designs Improvements in designs have made the choice to resurface much easier Still heavily debated Malrotation Navigation Patellectomy
Background The introduction of patellar replacement in 1974 was monumental but proved to be a challenge Fracture, osteonecrosis, aseptic loosening, dislocation, maltracking, overstuffing, catastrophic failure, polyethylene wear, patellar clunk, and disruption of the extensor mechanism Clayton ML, Thirupathi R.

Background Anterior knee pain must be adequately assessed before arthroplasty Some of the traditional indications for resurfacing the patella are advanced age, anterior knee pain, patellofemoral radiographic signs of arthritis, inflammatory arthritis, etc. The ongoing controversy of whether or not to resurface is one that troubles many orthopaedic surgeons Some follow strict guidelines or follow their past experiences in arthroplasty Allardyce TJ, Scuderi GR, Insall JN.

Objective Our objective was to research patients from a database who had undergone a total knee arthroplasty with selective resurfacing by one surgeon We hypothesized that revision patella resurfacing would be lower than the historical average and patient outcome would be equivalent to those with a resurfaced patella Secondary hypothesis was that high BMI negatively correlated with patient outcomes and that insurance status would correlate with outcomes scores
Methods Between 5/2008 and 12/2012 all patients with primary osteoarthritis (OA) undergoing a primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) at a single university-affiliated hospital were considered for inclusion in the study The study was approved by the university’s IRB Inclusion criteria Patients with primary OA Patients with prior TKA were excluded from the study
Methods A total of 97 patients with 117 TKA’s were included in the study to evaluate retrospective data 81 pts (101 TKA’s) elected to participate in a phone interview establishing our outcomes scores Patient satisfaction was based on outcomes scores consisting of the Knee and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), the Oxford knee score, and the Anterior Knee Pain Rating
Methods The anterior knee pain rating used was previously used by Waters 2003 and consisted of whether anterior knee pain was present, whether it interfered with activity, and whether its severity warranted further surgery
Methods Of the patients that were called to participate one elected to not participate and one ended the phone call halfway through the interview Several (fourteen) patients were unable to be reached or had a nonworking number
Methods Hawker, et al. To ascertain constant vs intermittent pain using a set of questions administered to 100 pts by phone Measure of Intermittent and Constant OA Pain (ICOAP), suitable for use by clinicians to document progression or worsening of pain, response to therapy, and indication for need for referral to surgery for consideration of joint replacement WOMAC, HOOS, KOOS used to test reliability of new tool Breeman, et al. Used telephone questionnaires for some participants to determine outcomes scores Hawker, G.A. et al.Development and preliminary psychometric testing of a new OA pain measure e an OARSI/OMERACT initiative.

Methods All surgeries were performed by a single surgeon The patients all had an arthroplasty performed with a posterior stabilized (PS) knee. The patella was resurfaced if the patient was age 65 years or older and was not resurfaced if age 64 or younger All patients underwent the same protocol postoperatively All pair-wise comparisons were conducted using alpha level adjusted t tests conducted after an overall analysis of variance
Results Average F/U for resurfaced was 15.7 months and for nonresurfaced was 16.4 months Table 1Patient Demographics Resurfaced:LateralityGenderPre-Op Ant Knee Pain Yes56Left54Male34Yes46 No45Right47Female67No55 AgeBMIInsurance: Average64.86Average33.672Medicaid37 Range22-84Range20.98-52Medicare3 Private61
Results No significant difference was found between the two groups in terms of KOOS, Oxford, and Anterior Knee Pain Rating (AKPR) 4 out of 45 (8.88%) patients underwent subsequent patellar resurfacing At 11 months, 2 years, 3 months, and a planned resurfacing at the 6 month f/u visit Table 2KOOS ADLKOOS PainKOOS QOLKOOS SportKOOS SymptomsOxfordAKS Resurfaced79.010979.201463.76728.7574.869134.48890.8889 Non-resurfaced78.256180.009866.489734.553680.114834.85710.8214 P Value0.85730.84680.64250.3670.14040.87170.7255
