PURPOSES To study the incidence of femoral or tibial bowing in the coronal plane in a Chinese population, and how it affects the accuracy of bone cuts for total knee replacement when an intramedullary alignment system is used. METHODS Standing radiographs of the entire lower limb of each patient with end-stage primary osteoarthritis of the knee were analysed. All radiographs were digitised and the extent of bowing in the coronal plane measured. A bowing was marked if an angulation was more… CONTINUE READING
