A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Background: Mechanically aligned total knee arthroplasty can create a tight collateral ligament in 0° of extension, instability in a compartment between 0° of extension and 90° of flexion that is uncorrectable by collateral ligament release, and changes in limb and knee alignment from normal. The goal of the present study was to calculate the freq...
One strategy for aligning the limb and positioning components in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in the coronal plane is mechanical alignment, which has the goal of positioning the center of the hip, knee, and ankle on a straight-line by establishing a femoral and tibial joint line at the knee that is perpendicular to the mechanical axis of the femur...
