Synopsis

The book provides a complete overview of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Key factors in successful TKA are knee alignment and soft-tissue balancing. The extension-flexion gap balancing techniques crucial to the osteotomy (femur or tibia) conducted to secure these two conditions are described in detail, from conventional original methods up to the new pre-cut method. Precise implant installation methods are also described in the case of both femur and tibia, with clear explanations given of the differences in procedure between implants used for PS type (PCL-substituting) and CR type (PCL-retaining) TKA. As leading TKA specialists, the editors themselves address the topic of procedures for obtaining an optimum range of motion.
