Original uncertainty examples How do we know the patients pain is caused by the problem with the knee replacement? ~  What is the best group of tests to fully assess a knee replacement which is causing symptoms again ~ Patients who remain in pain longterm are often told their xrays look ‘fine’. Does this indicate that the Xray is not the optimum test for such patients? ~ Can thresholds, based on patient factors and level of pain be created  for proceeding with revision surgery in patient with persistent pain?
