Radiographic Evaluation of Alignment Following Total Knee Arthroplasty – a Systematic Review. Part II

, , and


The aim of this second part is to review the existing described methods for measuring postoperative total knee arthroplasty (TKA) alignment in sagital and axial plane as well as the existing literature regarding the axial plane evaluation with the use of computer tomography. Given that the most frequent mistakes when positioning the total knee arthroplasty components are made in the axial plane, it is necessary to know what are the limits of radiographic evaluation, for which CT scan is the most valuable tool in assessing the rotation of the components.
Keywords: TKA alignment, sagital plane, axial plane, rotational analysis, CT evaluation.
