Our experience with computer plans of kinematically aligned total knee arthroplasty showed that the anteroposterior (AP) axis of the tibial component when viewed in an axial plane did not consistently intersect either the medial border or the medial 1/3 of the tibial tubercle. The purposes were (1) to determine the variability in the mediolateral location of the tibial tubercle with respect to the medial tibia on the magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the knee and (2) to determine whether the AP… CONTINUE READING
