Surgical exposure in revision total knee arthroplasty.


Extensile exposure is one of the crucial skills for managing the challenges presented by revision total knee arthroplasty. Full exposure is necessary to perform the intricate bone and ligament work, and short incisions combined with a timid approach to the quadriceps mechanism will result in inadequate reconstruction of the knee. Repair and reconstruction of the facial, subcutaneous, and cutaneous tissues to achieve closure are separate and equally important skills.
