Figure 3

Clinical outcome after 2 years evaluated by the Modified Cincinnati Knee Rating System. The score from this system is shown for the entire patient cohort compared with patients with posttraumatic and mild degenerative defects (Jaeger-Wirth score < 3) and patients with osteoarthritic defects (Jaeger-Wirth score = 3). The preoperative and follow-up times are as indicated. Scores are presented as medians; the ends of the boxes define the 25th and 75th centiles, and error bars the 10th and 90th centiles. Where indicated (asterisks), differences were statistically significant (p < 0.05) compared with the preoperative situation.
