    Abstract

    Arthrodesis of the knee is an infrequently performed operation perceived by both patient and surgeon to have a poor outcome. This study compares functional outcome of knee arthrodesis following failed primary arthroplasty with that of revision knee arthroplasty in a matched patient group. Outcome was measured using the SF12 and Oxford Knee Score. Twelve patients underwent arthrodesis, of which eight were available for functional review at a mean of 53 months. No significant difference was found between the outcome scores of the two groups, although it is recognised that the numbers involved were low. Arthrodesis of the knee may be considered as a surgical option following failed arthroplasty when factors are present that may mitigate against an optimal result following revision knee arthroplasty.
