Abstract

We report an observation made about the differences between right and left side in case of total knee and unicondylar knee replacement. It was found that unicondylar knee replacement was performed more commonly on the left side (66%), as compared to only 34% on right side, where as total knee replacement was more common on the right side (64%) as compared to 36% on left side. The exact clinical utility of this difference is yet to be known.
