Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with persistent quadriceps dysfunction. Because quadriceps dysfunction impairs functional performance, minimizing quadriceps dysfunction by attenuating central activation deficits early after surgery may improve function later in life. Rehabilitation strategies incorporating neuromuscular electrical stimulation and early, aggressive quadriceps strengthening may prove beneficial. Furthermore, surgical approaches, such as minimally invasive TKA, may minimize postoperative quadriceps dysfunction.
