Total Knee Replacement in Hemophilic Arthropaties

Saccomanni Bernardino

In severely affected haemophilic patients arthropathy is a common problem which can lead to considerable pain and functional deficit. 

Surgical management, including total knee arthroplasty, can be undertaken if conservative management fails. A search of literature showed a number of studies describing the use of total knee arthroplasty. The paper reviews the functional outcome of arthroplasty in knee joint, the postoperative and long-term complications. Although complications are commonly described and the surgery is technically demanding, the results suggest that arthropathy, particularly of the knee, can be a valuable option in the management of severe haemophilic arthropathy. In this review, there are not outcomes and figures.
