About this study
The prevalence of chronic pain following total knee replacement has been under studied. In recent years, the perioperative use of multimodal analgesic strategies including regional anesthetic techniques has substantially improved early postoperative pain management. However, it is not clear that these improvements in perioperative care have reduced the frequency of chronic pain post-total knee replacement. This study will conduct a cross sectional study to determine the prevalence of chronic knee pain following total knee replacement up to 5 years postoperatively. This study will also identify risk factors, such as smoking, depression, and pain problems elsewhere as predictors of chronic knee pain after knee replacement.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
