The capability of determining femoral component rotation by using a posterior femoral condyle resection made perpendicular to the longitudinal tibial shaft axis in posterior cruciate retaining total knee arthroplasty was evaluated. From 100 consecutive cases, 54 used the femoral posterior condyle axis and 46 used an extramedullary alignment rod based on the tibial shaft axis. Seventy-two percent of total knee arthroplasties using the posterior condyle axis required lateral release versus 28… CONTINUE READING
