This is the editor's interpretation of a paper published in the orthopaedic literature in 2005 - our attempt to make relevant medical articles accessible to lay readers. If you want to read the original it is easy to ask your librarian to obtain a reprint for you from any medical library.
These authors briefly review much of the established literature and go into detail of management from a surgeon perspective, outlining their own surgical practice and their own recommendations in some detail. The paper touches on the essentials of rehabilitation. They agree with others before them that the best treatment of arthrofibrosis is prevention, and they state categorically that "before any surgical procedure is performed around the knee, the patient should be educated about this potential complication".
