Purpose: to assess the resumption of physical activity after knee replacement. Methods: retrospective study. Results: 118 patients were included in the final analysis. A resumption of >93% of the activities performed before surgery was observed. Logistic regression analysis did not show any significant associations between postoperatory activity and epidemiological and clinical variables except the function perceived by the patient. Conclusions: the resumption of physical activity and sport is a paramount expectation for active patients. A clearer definition of physical activity and sports realistically achievable after a knee prosthesis is necessary but not yet fully available.
