The effect of posterior tibial slope was evaluated in a rotationally unconstrained anterior cruciate ligament-sacrificing total knee replacement (Ortholoc, Dow Corning Wright, Arlington, TN). Sloping the surface 7 degree posteriorly loosened the knee to varus-valgus and anterior-posterior stress in flexion. Eliminating posterior slope improved varus-valgus stability in flexion but slightly increased anterior-posterior laxity in extension. Values for the 3 degree posterior slope knee were… CONTINUE READING
