Abstract

A new standardized system of abbreviations has been adopted by the Knee Society to bring clarity and brevity to scientific reports involving the arthritic knee. This system works by using a set of core abbreviations that are modified with prefixes, suffixes, and superscript notations to indicate succinctly the surgical approach, the procedure used, and the type of prosthesis implanted.
