Evaluation of anatomic references for tibial sagittal alignment in total knee arthroplasty

Abstract

The authors aimed to demonstrate the relationship between the sagittal mechanical axis of the tibia and other reference axes of the tibia and fibula in patients with advanced osteoarthritis of the knee joints, and then to identify a reliable landmark in order to minimize posterior tibial slope measurement errors. We evaluated 133 osteoarthritic knees with… (More)
