Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The purpose of this study was to compare clinical outcomes including return to recreational activities (cycling, swimming, exercise walking, dancing, jogging, and mountain climbing) after opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) and unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). Clinical outcomes were assessed using Tegner activity scores, ranges of motion, and Lysholm knee scores. In both groups, the number of patients participating in recreational activities was significantly reduced after surgery, but without a significant intergroup difference (1.3 activities in HTO group and in 1.6 activities in UKA group). Average Tegner activity scale scores, ranges of motion, and Lysholm knee scores did not show significant differences between the 2 groups. This study identified no significant differences between HTO and UKA for medial unicompartmental osteoarthritis in terms of return to recreational activity and short-term clinical outcomes.
