“Quadriceps Sparing Versus Standard Total Knee Arthroplasty”
This study is a randomized clinical trial comparing standard medial para-patellar total knee arthroplasty with a quadriceps sparing mid-vastus approach. Patients who are medically well and have a good support structure at home will be randomized to a standard or quadriceps sparing surgical approach stratified by type of analgesia (adductor canal block or local infiltration). We will compare patient satisfaction and costs from the perspective of the Ministry of Health, the institution, society and the patient.
