Proper soft tissue tension is one of the important factors in mobile-bearing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We evaluated varus/valgus laxities, particularly at flexion, which is a key factor in reducing the risk of subluxation and dislocation of bearings to assess the effect that the flexion angle and the presence or absence of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) have on laxity in patients with low-contact stress (LCS) prostheses of the PCL-retaining (24 patients, 24 knees) and PCL… CONTINUE READING
