There is still a relevant rate of outliers in coronal alignment >3° when the conventional technique is used, potentially accompanied by a poorer long-term clinical outcome and a reduced longevity of the implant. Intraoperative implementation of preoperative planning and above all checking of the bone resections carried out are decisive for reinstating a straight leg axis. Intramedullary control of femoral resection has not been described to date. The objective of this study was to present a new… CONTINUE READING
