Summary: Hierarchical Multiple Regression was performed on the pre and postoperative measures of 56 patients with end-stage osteoarthritis. Post-operative range of knee motion during stair ascent and descent was predicted by pre-operative measures in different domain blocks. Conclusions: Pre-operative variables predicting post-operative stair walking differ between stair ascent and descent. This has consequences for the treatment of patients waiting for a total knee replacement.
