The use of a computer navigation system is intended to optimize implant positioning. This study compares prospectively followed total knee arthroplasty (TKA) done with imageless computer-assisted navigation with a cohort of TKA done with manual instruments. Primary TKAs were performed on 147 knees, with 78 in the manual group and 69 in the navigated group. Coronal alignment was determined by postoperative full-length standing radiographs. The 2 groups had similar mean values for radiographic… CONTINUE READING
