Malalignment, in particular femoral component malrotation, is a commonly accepted failure mode in total knee arthroplasty. The general objective of this paper is twofold: firstly, it accentuates clinical observations of the effects of rotational malalignment in total knee arthroplasty. Secondly, it discusses the relevant parameters of existing knee joint models with regards to rotational malalignment and its biomechanical background, thereby setting a basis for future studies. To summarise… CONTINUE READING
