BACKGROUND Computer navigation has improved accuracy and reduced the percentage of alignment outliers in TKA. However, the characteristics of outliers and the risk factors for limb malalignment after TKA are still unclear. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We therefore addressed the following questions: (1) What is the incidence and characteristics of outliers for(More)
PURPOSE This retrospective study aimed to determine if computer navigation provides consistent accuracy for limb and component alignment during TKA irrespective of body mass index (BMI) by comparing limb and component alignment and the outlier rates in obese versus non-obese individuals undergoing computer-assisted TKA. METHODS Six hundred and thirty-five(More)
We retrospectively reviewed the records of 1150 computer-assisted total knee replacements and analysed the clinical and radiological outcomes of 45 knees that had arthritis with a pre-operative recurvatum deformity. The mean pre-operative hyperextension deformity of 11° (6° to 15°), as measured by navigation at the start of the operation, improved to a mean(More)
This study aimed to determine the accuracy and reliability of visual estimation of limb alignment and knee flexion by orthopaedic surgeons when compared to recordings done by computed navigation. Orthopaedic surgeons attending a national conference were asked to place a lower limb synthetic bone model in 6 positions of the knee in the coronal and sagittal(More)
This study aimed to determine limb and component alignment after computer-assisted total knee arthroplasty in 30 patients (32 limbs) with an altered hip center due to a prior hip implant or deformed femoral head. There were no outliers greater than ±3° in the postoperative coronal alignment of the limb and the femoral component in relation to the altered(More)
