Dear Sir:

In the December issue of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research there was an article by Mont et al.1 In this article the authors reported the history of the contralateral knee after primary knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis and state, “There are no data in the literature on the predictive course of the contralateral knee for patients presenting with total knee replacement.” An article titled, “The Long-term Outcomes of Contralateral Knees After Unilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty for Osteoarthritis” was published in the Journal of Arthroplasty in 1994,2 therefore, someone has written on this subject.
