Abstract

The aim was to identify independent preoperative factors associated with changes in health-related quality of life (HRQoL) following total knee arthroplasty (TKA), and whether these could be used as indicators for surgery. A retrospective study of 3127 TKA patients was undertaken that included 1194 (38.2%) male and 1933 (61.8%) female patients, with a mean age of 70.5 years (standard deviation 9.0). Patient demographics, body mass index and ASA grade, Oxford Knee Score (OKS) and EuroQol 5-dimension (EQ-5D) 3-level, which was used to assess HRQoL, were collected preoperatively and 2 years postoperatively. When adjusting for confounding factors, obesity grade II (p = 0.002), ASA grade 3 (p = 0.002), and a better preoperative OKS (p
