Abstract

PurposeIntramedullary rods are widely used to align the distal femoral cut in total knee arthroplasty. We hypothesised that both coronal (varus/valgus) and sagittal (extension/flexion) cutting plane are affected by rotational changes of intramedullary femoral alignment guides.MethodsDistal femoral cuts using intramedullary alignment rods were simulated by means of a computer-aided engineering ...
