|Abstract / Summary|
Knee fractures are comprised of distal femoral fractures, patellar fractures, and proximal tibial fractures and may result in complications for the individual patient in the form of knee pain, reduced knee function, reduced quality of life (QOL), reduced work performance, posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA), and risk of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Current literature is sparse on the 1) incidences of knee fractures, 2) patient-reported outcomes of knee fractures, and 3) risk of TKA following knee fracture. This PhD thesis was divided into three studies to address the three abovementioned points.
