We report the six year implant survivorship, tibial component alignment and knee and limb function measured by the Oxford Knee Score and Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index ((WOMAC) score after kinematically aligned total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and tested the hypothesis that varus alignment of the tibial component, knee, or limb does not adversely affect implant survival and function. We prospectively followed 214 consecutive patients (219 knees) treated with a… CONTINUE READING
