Figure 2: Comparative data of temporal values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate in unilateral total knee arthroplasty. The mean values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate showed higher increase at 5 days after surgery in the nonelevated C-reactive protein group compared to the elevated C-reactive protein group (P = 0.045). The mean values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate decreased from preoperative to 2 months in the elevated C-reactive protein group, whereas the mean values increased from preoperative to 2 months in the nonelevated C-reactive protein group (P = 0.003). *Mean value of erythrocyte sedimentation rate at each time point only differed preoperatively (preoperative, P = 0.010; postoperative 3 days, 0.117; postoperative 5 days, 0.278; postoperative 2 months, 0.265)
