Abstract: This study was carried out between January 2016 & December 2016 to analysis the clinical and functional outcome of total knee replacement in Indian patients with high flexion posterior stabilized knee prosthesis. The range of motion (ROM) after total knee arthroplasty is an important component of patient overall functional outcome. The ability to the store posterior femoral translation has been shown be to an important factor in enhancing knee flexion after total knee arthroplasty. Knee society scoring and functional evaluation scoring system were used to collect clinic-radiological data. The range of motion (ROM) score preoperatively and 6 months postoperative was 19.30 (SD± 3.21); 96.5º and 24.53 (SD± 1.25) 122.65º respectively. The overall complication rate was 6.6. High flex knee improved patient abilities to perform activities that require weight bearing knee flex such as kneeling squatting and rising from sitting on the floor, activities very important in Indian scenario.
