The intraoperative sagittal cutting block alignment when intramedullary alignment rods are used was investigated. Its absolute orthogonal orientation in relation to the mechanical femoral axis should be analysed. It was hypothesized that (1) alignment rods do not ensure a desired deviation within a range between 0A degrees and 3A degrees flexion as it has been shown to be favourable for clinical ...
