Dr. Vivek Sharma | Dr. B S Murthy | Dr. Shivangi Kumari

Abstract: Background: Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease in the world, with the increase in both incidence and prevalence associated with increasing age. (1) The purpose of this paper was to analyze the patient outcomes after total knee arthroplasty in patients older than 75 years, both from a prospective & retrospective aspect. Materials and methods: A prospective and retrospective study was conducted for a period of 12 months among 40 Patients operated with end stage arthritis of knee at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Ghaziabad. The primary outcome variable is quality of life (QOL). Results: For the healthy person who is more than 75 years, TKA provides pain relief and functional improvement, comparable with benefits in the younger patient population, and this is also reflected in similar health related quality of life gains. Conclusion: With increasing life expectancy and elective surgery improving the quality of life, age alone is not a factor that affects the outcome of TKA and should not be a limiting factor when deciding who should receive this surgery.
