BACKGROUND Total knee arthroplasty performed with computer-assisted navigation without breaching of the femoral medullary canal may decrease the prevalence of fat and/or bone-marrow-cell embolization. We performed this study to determine whether the use of navigation for primary total knee arthroplasty resulted in a different prevalence of fat and/or bone-marrow-cell embolization. METHODS We enrolled 160 patients (210 knees) who were scheduled to undergo primary total knee arthroplasty with… CONTINUE READING
