  • PurposeControversy still exists whether coronal malalignment would influence the long-term survival of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The hypothesis was that an improved design of the articular surface of modern TKA would prevent the increase in contact stresses and thus decrease the wear even when the implant was placed in a varus position. Two different designs of TKA were compared biomechanically and clinically.MethodsThe patients whose prosthesis was initially placed in a varus alignment by… CONTINUE READING
