Core Tip

Core Tip: In our meta-analysis, we searched PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane from January 2000 to September 2022, and we included only high level randomized controlled trials in order to get more accurate results. We discussed the influence of multiple factors on anterior knee pain after total knee arthroplasty, with different results from previous studies.
