Revision Knee Replacement

Older person's knee

The Revision Knee Replacement PSP was initiated by the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) with support from the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA). The PSP explored unanswered research questions about the assessment, management and rehabilitation of ‘problematic knee replacements’.

The PSP built on the work done by the Hip and Knee Replacement for Osteoarthritis PSP, but had a scope that focused on the pathway at a later stage - when a patient has further problems following initial knee replacement.

In the initial survey, 769 uncertainties were submitted by 267 people, made up of 137 patients, 18 carers/spouses and 112 healthcare professionals.  201 respondents ranked the uncertainties included in the interim survey and the Top 10 was agreed by 12 patients/carers and 12 healthcare professionals in a workshop.

The Revision Knee Replacement Top 10 was announced in January 2020.
