One such term is quadriceps-sparing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We examined 100 knees intraoperatively in 100 patients at the time of TKA, dissected 45 entire cadaveric leg specimens, and did high-resolution 3-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging scans on five normal knees to specifically determine: (1) the distal most insertion point of the… CONTINUE READING
