Rationale of the Knee Society Clinical Rating System

J N Insall et al. Clin Orthop Relat Res. .

Abstract

A new total knee rating system has been developed by The Knee Society to provide an up-to-date more stringent evaluation form. The system is subdivided into a knee score that rates only the knee joint itself and a functional score that rates the patient's ability to walk and climb stairs. The dual rating system eliminates the problem of declining knee scores associated with patient infirmity.
