Can interepicondylar distance predict joint line position in primary and revision knee arthroplasty?

Abstract

Restoration of the position of the prosthetic joint line (JL) to the same level as the original JL is a challenging problem in primary adn revision knee arthroplasty, and there is no reliable method for achieving this objective. We hypothesized that there is a constant ratio between the interepicondylar distance (IED) and the perpendicular distance from… (More)
