In total knee arthroplasty (TKA), intramedullary guides are often used for aligning the distal femoral cutting block. Because of the highly varying angles between the mechanical axis and the anatomical femoral axis (AMA), different valgus pre-sets have been recommended. The present study investigated the optimal valgus pre-set (measuring the AMA in long-leg radiographs or at 5A degrees, 6A ...
