  • 2. Corrigendum Corrigendum to “Special surgical technique for knee arthroplasty” [Apollo Med (December 2012) 312e314] The author of this paper and the editor would like to amend information to the Materials and methods section of the above paper and the new amendments are as underlined below. 1. Materials & methods We typically operate more than 1200e1800 cases a year, out of which we have included 300 cases randomly for the study. All these selected cases were local residents and easy to follow- up. However of the total knee cases operated in last few years till date, the patients belonged to age group ranging from 34 years to 94 years with weight ranging from 46 kg to 148 kg. Out of the selected group of patients, 68% were males while rest (32%) were females. 11% of these patients had BMI more than 35 with more than 90% patients had severe deformities including varus, valgus and fixed flexion deformities. Out of total operated cases till date, 52 patients were wheel chair bound while one patient had been suffering for last more than 4 years in quadruped position. Two patients were suffering from fixed extension deformities for last 17 and 26 years respectively each. Most of the patients were suffering from osteoarthritis while few patients had rheu-matoid arthritis with associated diseases like gout. The same oper- ating knee surgeon operated all the patients after proper pre- operative clinical assessment using his own devised new technique of knee replacement surgery. The major indication for total knee replacement surgeries was osteoarthritis with deformities of lower limb. These pa- tients were assessed pre-operatively & post-operatively using Oxford knee scoring system (OKS). X-rays with standard AP standing weight bearing, lateral & skyline views were taken. Discussion In patients having primary knee replacement surgery, a standard course of post-operative outpatient physiotherapy did not significantly improve knee ROM as compared with that measured in patients with no physiotherapy.5 Our patients, in the follow-up study did not require any kind of help or assis- tance of physiotherapist to gain good ROM. However, patients were advised to do routine knee movements to avoid com- plications like deep vein thrombosis (DVT), etc. Out of all operated cases, only one case of DVT has been reported so far, which was treated successfully, with infection rate almost close to 0%.
