Abstract

Total knee arthroplasty is considered as the treatment of choice for those with end-stage hemophilic arthropathy. Compared to other patients undergoing TKA, these patients have specific features, such as bleeding tendency, younger age, pre-operative restricted range of motion (ROM), altered anatomy and increased complications. This narrative review is going to investigate several issues regarding the TKA in hemophilic patients, including indications, perioperative factor replacement, surgical challenges, postoperative rehabilitation, outcome, and complications.
