A comparison of the midvastus and paramedian approaches for total knee arthroplasty.
(Clinical Trial;Journal Article)
This prospective, double-blinded evaluation of 24 osteoarthritic patients undergoing bilateral total knee replacement compared the midvastus and standard parapatellar approaches. The midvastus approach was found to offer an early advantage in terms of less pain and earlier return to function. There were no significant complications associated with the midvastus approach. This approach should be a part of the knee surgeon's armamentarium.
