Core Tip Limb length inequality following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an important cause of patient dissatisfaction. This meta-analysis evaluated the limb length discrepancy (LLD) and its impact on the functional outcome following TKA. Five studies (n = 1551) reported the average limb lengthening of 5.98 mm. The LLD after TKA was ranging from 0.4 ± 10 mm to 15.3 ± 2.88 mm. There was no difference in the preoperative and postoperative LLD (MD -1.23; 95%CI: -3.72, 1.27; P = 0.34). Pooled data of two studies (n = 219) revealed significant limb lengthening in valgus deformity than varus (MD -2.69; 95%CI: -5.11, 0.27; P = 0.03). The pooled data of three studies (n = 611) showed significantly worse functional outcome in patients with LLD of ≥ 10 mm compared to < 10 mm (standard MD 0.58; 95%CI: 0.06, 1.10; P = 0.03). Most of the patient's limb gets lengthened after TKA; however, it affects the functional outcome when the LLD is more than equal to 10 mm.
