Chronic postsurgical knee-pain (CPSP) is a burden for approx. 20% of the patients following total knee replacement (TKR). Presurgical pain intensities have consistently been found associated with CPSP and it is suggested that e.g. comorbidities are likewise important for development of CPSP. This study aimed to identify presurgical risk factors for development of CPSP 5 years after TKR based on medical records containing information regarding comorbidities.
