Özet

Background: Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative condition causing coordination loss in musculoskeletal system. Many studies suggest that total knee arthroplasty in patients with Parkinson's disease has unfavorable treatment results and high complication rates. Our hypothesis was that total knee arthroplasty might be an effective procedure in patients with Parkinson's disease.
