Femoral shortening has an advantage of gaining reduction in severe grades of congenital dislocation of the knee joint without release or lengthening of the quadriceps tendon, thereby reducing the incidence of extensor lag. We report our mid-term functional results in six patients (10 knees) with grade III congenital dislocation of the knee joint who were(More)

The purpose of this article is to review the appearance of normal post-TKA roentgenographs and describe the correct sequence for their interpretation. It is unwise to depend solely on patients' symptoms when diagnosing TKA complications because serial radiographs(More)
