Correction of valgus deformity during total knee arthroplasty is usually carried out by releasing lateral supporting structures from the femoral side of the joint. A new technique has been advocated that involves multiple stabs of the scalpel blade or pie crusting of the posterolateral corner. It is the hypothesis of this study that the correction achieved by using this technique occurs when the lateral collateral ligament is effectively released and that the common peroneal nerve may be at… CONTINUE READING
