This study assessed whether using a variable distal valgus resection angle improved post-operative coronal lower limb alignment in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Two groups were compared: Fixed (n = 124), where a fixed distal valgus resection angle of 7° was used; Variable (n = 87), where the resection angle was adjusted to the measured femoral mechanical anatomical (FMA) angle of the patient. FMA and mechanical femoro-tibial (MFT) angles were measured on pre-operative and post-operative hip… CONTINUE READING
