Arthrofibrosis of the knee can follow total knee replacement, knee arthroscopy, open surgeries, soft tissue injuries, fractures as well as other causes. Arthrofibrosis of the knee following total knee replacement may be even more functionally disabling than the original arthritic knee for which total knee replacement was initially done. It is a very frustrating condition to the patient and it is difficult to treat.
