Abstract

PurposeKinematically aligned total knee arthroplasty is associated with superior pain relief, increased flexion and a more normal feeling knee. It was hypothesized that due to restoring the knee's natural anatomy, kinematically aligned knees show more physiological tibiofemoral kinematics than mechanically aligned knees.MethodsInvestigations were performed in nine healthy cadaveric knees of whole ...
