Kinematic alignment is a possible alternative to mechanical alignment in total knee arthroplasty
Faculty: Steven M. Howell, MD
This session will aim to answer the following questions:
- Does kinematically aligned (KA) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) achieve clinical outcomes comparable to those of mechanically aligned (MA) TKA?
- How do the limb, knee, and component alignments dif- fer between KA and MA TKA?
- How is joint line orientation angle changed from the native knee in KA TKA compared to that in MA TKA?
