Iskandar Tamimi, M.D., Ph.D., from University of Málaga in Spain, and colleagues assessed the likelihood of TKA among patients with osteoarthritis (OA) who were being treated with β-blockers. The analysis included 300 patients who underwent TKA and 300 patients who did not undergo TKA. Source: Advances and More licensed by HealthDay
