Functional Outcome Measures
Mar. 27, 2019
The Knee Society released a revised knee rating system in 1989 and updated it in 2011 (Fig 22-1). The latest update has been tailored to incorporate patient-specific activities and patient-perceived expectations. The updated system now consists of preoperative and postoperative objective measurements recorded by the surgeon and patient-driven measures evaluated by patients concerning their perceptions of the most important and deleterious aspects of their knee arthritis and replacement surgery.
