Does knee alignment influence gait in patients with severe knee osteoarthritis?
|Published in||Clinical Biomechanics. 2013, vol. 28, no. 1, p. 34-9|
|Abstract||Patients with knee osteoarthritis present an altered gait pattern. Amongst many factors, the lower limb alignment (varus, valgus) has been identified as an important risk factor for the progression of knee osteoarthritis. Among the large number of studies on knee osteoarthritis gait, only a few have included patients with a valgus deformity. The aims of this study were to determine how knee alignment influences full-body gait in patients with knee osteoarthritis and if knee malalignment is associated with pain and functional capacity.|
