The degree of constraint required to achieve immediate and long-term stability in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is frequently debated, with most authors favoring the least degree of constraint possible. There are generally three surgical biases in TKA involving the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL): surgeons who always retain the PCL, those who always sacrifice it, and those who decide to retain or sacrifice the PCL based on pathology. Surgeons who retain the PCL argue that it is one of the… CONTINUE READING
