Bilateral Oxford Meniscal Knee arthroplasty.


Thirty-two patients who underwent bilateral bicompartmental Oxford Meniscal Knee arthroplasty have been followed up prospectively for a mean period of 51 months from the time of their first operation. Pain relief was obtained in all but one knee; walking ability was improved in more than two-thirds. Overall patient satisfaction with the results was good. Two knees failed. The results demonstrate that bilateral knee arthroplasty can be expected to give good functional results.
