The aim of this study was to compare the mid-term functional outcomes of total knee replacement (TKR) and total hip replacement (THR). A cross-sectional postal audit survey of all consecutive patients who had a primary joint replacement at one orthopaedic centre 5-8 years ago was conducted. Participants completed an Oxford hip score or Oxford knee score, which are self-report measures of functional ability. Completed questionnaires were returned from 1112 THR patients and 613 TKR patients, giving a response rate of 72%. The median Oxford knee score of 26 was significantly worse than the median Oxford hip score of 19 (p<0.001). In conclusion, TKR patients experience a significantly poorer functional outcome than THR patients 5-8 years post-operatively.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
