In 60 consecutive total knee arthroplasties done in 52 patients with primary osteoarthritis and varus or neutral tibiofemoral alignment, the posterior condylar angle was calculated intraoperatively and averaged 3.98 degrees (range, 0 degrees-9 degrees). Eighteen knees had a posterior condylar angle value less than 3 degrees whereas 27 knees had a posterior condylar angle value of 5 degrees or greater. Final rotational alignment of the femoral component was set parallel to the transepicondylar… CONTINUE READING
