Total Knee Replacement Using Computer Navigation in Severe Extremity Deformities


Experience in cement total knee arthroplasty using computer navigation is presented. There were 42 patients with severe deformities of knee, condyles as well as tibia and femur diaphyses. Five patients out of them had prior implanted hip endoprostheses on ipsilateral side in whom use of routine arthroplasty technique with guide was impossible. In such cases computer navigation allowed to achieve high-precise insertion of implant with provision of correct ligament balance and maintenance of all axes and angles. The terms of rehabilitation and functional results were similar to common cases of primary knee joint replacement using computer navigation.
