PURPOSE The aim of this study was to comprehensively evaluate contemporary tibial component designs against global tibial anatomy. We hypothesized that anatomically designed tibial components offer increased morphological fit to the resected proximal tibia with increased alignment accuracy compared to symmetric and asymmetric designs. METHODS Using a… (More)
BACKGROUND Computer-assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) improves accuracy and reduces outliers in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, during the evaluation of CAOS systems, the error generated by the guidance system (hardware and software) has been generally overlooked. Limited information is available on the accuracy and precision of specific CAOS… (More)

Effectively addressing population-level variability within orthopedic analyses requires robust data sets that span the target population and can be greatly facilitated by statistical methods for incorporating such data into functional biomechanical models. Data sets continue to be disseminated that include not just anatomical information but also key… (More)
PURPOSE Contemporary total knee arthroplasty femoral component designs offer various degrees of fit amongst the global population. The purpose of this study was to assess component fit of contemporary femoral component design families against multiple ethnicities. METHODS Using a multi-ethnic dataset including Caucasian, Indian, and Korean subjects, this… (More)
