The published results indicate that the intra-articular injection of corticosteroid for manipulation under anesthesia during total Knee Arthroplasty enhanced range of motion without increasing the risk of joint injury.
Researchers reviewed the data of 209 patients (230 TKAs), who underwent manipulation with intra-articular steroids injections (IACI) during TKA. The outcome measures of the study were prosthetic joint infections (PJI) at 3 months follow-up and range-of-motion (ROM) at 6 weeks follow-up.
Researchers found no cases in 3 months of PJI.
