BACKGROUND Tibiofemoral instability is a common reason for total knee arthroplasty failure, and may be attributed to soft tissue deficiency and incorrect ligament balancing. There are many different designs of implant with varying levels of constraint to overcome this instability; however there is little advice for surgeons to assess which is suitable for a specific patient, and soft tissue balance testing during arthroplasty is very subjective. METHOD The current theories on primary and… CONTINUE READING
