A cold compress was applied after surgery, routine postoperative antibiotics were administered for 24 h to prevent infection, and detumescence therapy was applied. Vigorous activities were prohibited, and patients were encouraged to engage in active isometric contractions of the quadriceps femoris. Patients were required to wear an adjustable chucker-type knee brace. The ROM was adjusted to 20° 1-week post-surgery, 60° 2- to 3-weeks post-surgery, 90° 4-weeks post-surgery, and 120° 6- to 8-weeks post-surgery and prior to brace removal. After 10- to 12-weeks patients gradually resumed weight-bearing walking, and after 6-months were recovered sufficiently to recommence vigorous activities.
