INTRODUCTION Accurate implantation of the prosthesis components is a prognostic factor for long-term total knee arthroplasty survival as it reduces wear and loosening failure. Computer-assisted navigation systems have proved to produce accurate bone cuts orthogonal to the mechanical axis. Proper rotational alignment of the femoral component is one of the requirements for optimal positioning of the femoral prosthesis. The posterior bicondylar axis of the femoral prosthesis should therefore be… CONTINUE READING
