about

Knee arthrofibrosis is a complication in which an excessive amount of scar tissue forms that limits the knee's normal amount of flexion (ability to bend) and extension (straighten). If untreated, arthrofibrosis causes permanent dysfunction of the limb and severe arthritis. This problem is usually triggered by a specific event such as an injury or operation, which is called secondary arthrofibrosis. In rare cases, primary arthrofibrosis may occur without an inciting event. Fortunately, this problem may be prevented in most cases, or treated effectively if detected early in the scarring process. Two medical professionals have written this eBook to help patients understand knee arthrofibrosis. Dr. Frank Noyes, an internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, and Sue Barber-Westin, Director of Clinical Research at the Cincinnati SportsMedicine Research Foundation, team up to provide the most current information regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of knee arthrofibrosis.
