原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)We determined whether current outcome measurement tools are appropriate for the evaluation of the knee status in deep flexion range after TKA. Patients (n = 604) with more than 120° of knee flexion were evaluated by Knee Society score, WOMAC, and high flexion knee score (HFKS). The appropriateness of measurement tools was analyzed by correlation analyses and group comparisons (group 1: 120°–129°, group 2: 130°–139°, group 3: 140°–150°). HFKS showed stronger correlation with knee flexion compared with other scores. While other scores only differentiated between groups 2 and 3, HFKS could differentiate among groups 1, 2 and 3. These findings suggest that employment of proper outcome measurement tool is needed to evaluate and differentiate the knee status in deep flexion range...
