OBJECTIVE: To investigate the factor impacting the initial effect of replacement for osteoarthritis of the knee and the countermeasures. METHODS: A computer-based online search of VIP database was performed for articles published between January 1994 and October 2009, with the key words "knee joint, osteoarthritis, knee joint replacement, deep venous thrombosis, infection, prosthesis loosening". A total of 22 articles were included and analyzed. RESULTS: Artificial knee joint was selected according to condition of disease, joint limitation range, fixation pattern and meniscus functions. Guiding the knee rehabilitation, strictly aseptic operation, the use of preventive antibiotics can prevent infection, postoperative pain precise, and early functional training, and application of drugs for prevention of deep vein thrombosis drug can increase the certainty of subjective satisfaction, and improve recovery of joint activities. CONCLUSION: With developing surgical techniques and prosthesis, artificial knee replacement is improved. However, many issues require further investigation.
