This cadaveric study determines the relationship of the tibial metaphysis and intramedullary canal of the tibia (diaphysis), particularly relating to revision knee arthroplasty. A total knee arthroplasty was performed in 20 cadaveric tibiae using revision instrumentation with a canal-filling uncemented stem. The offset, which is the distance between the center of the tibial canal and the center of the tibial metaphysis, was measured using the revision system offset bushing. The average distance… CONTINUE READING
