Symptomatic, Biomechanical and Radiographic Outcomes in Knee Osteoarthritis Following Gastric Bypass Surgery
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatment||gastric bypass surgery|
|Sponsor||University Hospitals of Cleveland|
|Collaborator||Elizabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation|

|End date||May 2006|
|Trial size||35 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00194051, 02-03-10|
Weight is a risk factor for knee osteoarthritis
Knee osteoarthritis is associated with abnormal gait biomechanics
Gait biomechanics are evaluated in gastric bypass patients before and after losing 100 pounds.
|Observational model||defined population|
Male or female participants from 35 years up to 60 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: Undergoing gastric bypass surgery At least 35 years old - Exclusion Criteria: Inability to walk unassisted Pain affecting gait in any lower extremity joint -

|Description||Weight is a major risk factor for development of knee osteoarthritis, but not hip or ankle arthritis. One possible mechanism for this is the generation of abnormal gait biomechanics secondary to obesity that are conducive to the development of knee osteoarthritis. We evaluate gait biomechanics, knee symptoms and knee radiographs in 35 obese patients before and after gastric bypass surgery to determine the effect of significant weight loss on gait biomechanics, knee symptoms and knee radiographs.|
