Unbalanced contact force on the tibial component has been considered a factor leading to loosening of the implant and increased wear of the bearing surface in total knee arthroplasty. Because it has been reported that good alignment cannot guarantee successful clinical outcomes, the soft tissue balance should be checked together with the alignment. Finite element models of patients' lower extremities were developed to analyse the medial and lateral contact force distribution on the tibial… CONTINUE READING
