Correct postoperative leg alignment and stability of total knee prosthesis over the full range of movement are critical factors for successful TKA. This is achieved by correct implantation of prosthesis and soft tissue handling. However, the surgical approach and how to displace the patella are still controversial. We have carried out a cadaver study looking at the effect of patella eversion or subluxation on limb axis alignment during balancing of the knee in three different standard surgical… CONTINUE READING
