Case: Subacute pain after total knee arthroplasty

With Dr Axel Sauter, Professor Harald Breivik and Professor Narinder Rawal
19 Mar 2015

A significant proportion of patients continue to have severe pain in the weeks and months that follow a total knee arthroplasty (TKA), and these often have suboptimal pain treatment. When pain interferes with mobilization and joint movement, the rehabilitation phase is prolonged and painful. Even though many patients will have recovered knee function one year after surgery, a significant number still experience pain. Will aggressive attempts to relieve pain and hyperalgesia when present six weeks after surgery reduce the risk of chronic and disabling pain after this type of palliative surgery?
