OBJECTIVES To calculate the difference between the desired tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) along the tibial plateau axis and the advancement truly achieved in that direction when cage size has been determined using the method of Montavon and colleagues. To measure the effect of this difference on the final patellar tendon-tibial plateau angle (PTA) in relation to the ideal 90°. METHODS Trigonometry was used to calculate the theoretical actual advancement of the tibial tuberosity in a… CONTINUE READING
