Short term followup of twentytwo patients operated for knee arthroplasty using the total condylar design is presented. The population comprised of fifteen females and seven male patients with age ranging from forty to seventy years. The average duration of follow up was fiftysix months. The indication for the surgery was rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in thirteen knees and osteoarthritis (OA) in nine knees. majority of the patients belonged to category "C" of the Knee Society Scoring System. Post-operative functional and radiologic scoring indicated excellent results in sixty percent, good results in twentytwo percent, fair in nine percent and poor results in nine percent cases. The infection rate was 4.5 percent in our study which exceeds the acceptable international limit. Comparable functional outcome was seen in RA as well as OA. The continuous passive motion (CPM) machine helped achieve a better and faster range of motion (ROM) with no case requiring manipulation.
