[Diagnosis specific differences in knee joint geometry. A challenge for the correct axial implantation of long stems in total knee arthroplasty].

Abstract

BACKGROUND Arthrotic deformities with changes in knee geometry can produce difficulties in implanting long stem knee prosthesis systems using intramedullary alignment. They can result in incorrect lower limb axis and prosthesis positioning. The aim of the presented study was to measure knee geometry in patients with varus and valgus gonarthrosis in order to… (More)
