Abstract

Dear Editor: We have with interest read the article by Hambly and Griva titled “IKDC or KOOS? Which Measures Symptoms and Disabilities Most Important to Postoperative Articular Cartilage Repair Patients?” (September 2008, pages 1695-704) and the accompanying editorial by Bruce Reider. As pointed out in the article, there is no agreement regarding a gold-standard patient-assessed measure of the effect of cartilage repair surgery, and it is important to compare possible questionnaires. It would indeed improve interpretation of outcome in cartilage repair in particular, and in knee surgery in general, if consensus could be reached on a preferred patient-reported outcomes measure.
