Book Description :

The modern field of total knee arthroplasty began over 50 years ago in the 1970s when the FDA approved cement for implant fixation, and durable plastic that replaced the meniscus became available. Simultaneously, alignment evolved into two opposing and contentious philosophies, the anatomic approach (forefather of kinematic alignment, ) and the 'cookie-cutter' or mechanical alignment. In 2006, the concept of personalized surgery initiated a paradigm shift away from the philosophy of mechanical alignment to calipered kinematic alignment total knee replacement. Dr. Howell, a professor of biomedical engineering and a sports medicine surgeon, developed the kinematic alignment technique. To perform the surgery, he created the first commercially made patient-specific guides designed to assist the surgeon in setting the components coincident to the patient's pre-arthritic joint lines, which is the kinematic alignment target.In 2007, early adopters' clinical experience, particularly Dr. Meade, persuaded over 300 surgeons to perform more than 20,000 kinematically aligned total knee replacements by 2011. Between 2011 and 2020, many worldwide studies reported that kinematic alignment improves patient satisfaction, function, ease of recovery, soft tissue balance, flexion, and joint-line and limb alignment compared with mechanical alignment. It is a winning approach.This primer uses the familiar concept of the Ten Commandments and selects ten topics for the surgeon to follow. The success of kinematic alignment requires caliper measurements of bone resections and intraoperative recording of verification steps. These recommendations reduce the risk of complications, a topic of great interest to the patient! Patients that research options in total knee replacement surgery will come across the kinematic and mechanical alignment philosophies. The mechanical alignment technique is a 'cookie-cutter' approach that places the components the same way in everybody regardless of their legs' shape. Because the method changes the patient's joint lines, the healthy ligaments are released, making the replaced knee feel unnatural. Kinematic alignment restores the patient's knee alignment before arthritis developed and preserves healthy ligaments, promoting patient satisfaction and high function.We hope this primer is useful for those investigating knee replacement surgery. Those who chose kinematic alignment, ask your surgeon whether they use the caliper and intraoperative verifications to position your new knee optimally!

Book Description :

Background: In mechanically aligned total knee arthroplasty (TKA), there are two strategies for aligning the components in the coronal plane. The first strategy references the mechanical axes of the femur and tibia and sets the limb at a 0℗ʻ hip-knee-ankle angle. The second strategy references the anatomic axes of the femur and tibia and sets the knee at 5° or 7° valgus. However, these strategies may cause undesirable consequences recognized as a tight collateral ligament in 0℗ʻ of extension, instability in a compartment between 0° of extension and 90° of flexion that is uncorrectable by collateral ligament release, and a change in limb and knee alignment from normal. The goal of this research project was to determine the frequency and range of these undesirable consequences. Methods: The TKA was simulated on fifty three-dimensional bone models of normal lower extremities from white subjects. To establish a repeatable projection from which to make the measurements, the simulations were performed on the limb projected in the sagittal, coronal, and axial kinematic planes. In the coronal kinematic plane, mechanically aligned TKA was simulated using each of the two strategies: (1) setting the limb at a 0° hip-knee-ankle angle, and (2) setting knee at 5° or 7° valgus. In the axial kinematic plane, the internal-external rotation of the femoral component was set using each of the four methods: (Method 1) perpendicular to the anteroposterior axis of the trochlear groove), (Method 2) parallel to the transepicondylar axis, (Method 3) 3° externally rotated to the posterior condylar axis, and (Method 4) parallel to the tibial resection at 90° flexion with the use of gap-balancing. Results: The percentage of simulated TKAs that required ≥ 2 mm release of a tight collateral ligament at 0° of extension was 58% with the limb at a 0° hip-knee-ankle angle, 60% with the knee set at 5° valgus, and 64% with the knee set at 7° valgus. For Methods 1-3, the percentage of simulated TKAS that had ≥ 2 mm ligament instability in a compartment between 0° of extension and 90° of flexion that is uncorrectable by collateral ligament release was 56%, 74%, and 42% respectively with the limb set at a 0° hip-knee-ankle angle, 60%, 58%, and 54% respectively with the knee set at 5° valgus, and 64%, 74%, and 48% respectively with the knee set at 7° valgus. Gap balancing Method 4 did not cause ligament when used with any of the coronal alignment strategies. The percentage of simulated TKAS that had ≥ 2° change in limb and knee alignment was 58% with the limb set at a 0° hip-knee-ankle angle, 60% with the knee set at 5° valgus, and 64% with the knee set at 7° valgus. Discussion: Surgeons should be aware when they mechanically align a TKA with the limb set at a 0° hip-knee-ankle angle and the knee set at 5° or 7° valgus with four different methods for setting the internal-external rotation of the femoral component, that they will frequently have to manage a wide range of instabilities that are complex, cumulative, and uncorrectable by collateral ligament release, and a wide range of change in limb and knee alignment from normal. Patients who perceive these changes in stability, limb alignment, and knee alignment may be dissatisfied and require counseling.

Book Description :

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is known to be a successful procedure that can treat pain and disfunction caused by knee osteoarthritis (KOA). However, approximately 20% of patients are dissatisfied after surgery, with complications that have been linked to variable intraoperative procedures such as prosthetic component alignment and soft-tissue balancing techniques. The concept of kinematic alignment has been introduced to serve as an alternative to traditional mechanical alignment, where all patients’ bone cuts are made in the same way to restore a straight hip-knee-ankle line. Kinematic alignment instead aims to restore the anatomy of the native knee, without the need to balance the soft tissues. While many methods regarding soft-tissue balancing are subjective to surgeon decisions, new technology released by OrthoSensor serves to take tibiofemoral force measurements in each compartment of the knee during a passive range of motion, claiming that equal contact forces within various thresholds presume knee balance. However, biomechanical knee balance is defined using the amount of knee motion resulting from a known applied force, which we have quantified with a novel knee stability device. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of these contact force measurements to biomechanical knee laxity and prosthetic component alignment, as well as to explore the clinical utility of using contact forces and component alignments to predict knee laxity. These relationships were explored by creating a model of the lower limb in OpenSim 4.0 that incorporated contact meshes of the prosthetic components and varying properties of ligament stiffnesses to represent five different types of knees. 790 forward dynamic simulations were run at multiple flexion angles, applying increasing and decreasing torque to move the knee in the varus-valgus direction. Correlations were calculated between contact forces, knee laxity, and component alignment, and forward step-wise regressions were done to try to predict laxity using inputs of contact and alignment. Balanced contact forces did not show a consistent association with balanced knee laxity, but higher contact forces were generally associated with decreased laxity. However, contact measurements did not have a consistent significant effect in the prediction of knee laxity, which adds to the lack of support for the utilization of these measurements. Tibiofemoral contact was also quite sensitive to component alignment changes, which supports the idea that kinematically-aligned TKAs should not use a force target when balancing the knee, as patient-specific alignment entails patient-specific contact forces. Overall, the relationships between tibiofemoral contact and biomechanical knee function were inconsistent and therefore the use of these contact forces in soft-tissue balancing is not supported. More research should be done in modeling these forces during daily activities to explore a relationship between contact forces and active functionality.

Book Description :

Introduction: Kinematic alignment which aims to provide a well balance prosthetic knee through a full range of motion is a controversial alternative to conventional mechanical alignment following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). With advances in surgical technology and the advent of robotic assisted TKA (RA TKA), implants can now be placed with accuracy to achieve the desired limb and component alignment along with balanced gaps. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome and patient satisfaction following TKA with tibial component placed in anatomic or constitutional varus alignment. Methods: 237 patients undergoing primary RA-TKA were screened to identify 124 individuals (52%) with post op constitutional varus aligned knees, defined as the desired tibial varus inclination of 1-3 degrees (mean 1.2 u00b1 0.4 degrees) measured by computer software. 40 patients (18 males, 22 females) with minimum 1 year follow up were included. Mean age was 67.0 yrs (range 49.8 u2013 83.2) and mean BMI was 31.8 kg/m2 (range 19.3 u2013 42.7 kg/m2). Patient satisfaction, Knee Society (KSS) knee and function scores, and clinical outcomes were reviewed.Results: The average overall patient satisfaction was 4.6 u00b1 0.6 on a 5-point Likert scale with 97% being very satisfied or satisfied. KSS function scores improved from an average of 44.5 u00b1 12.9 preop to 77.7 u00b1 15.0 at 1 year postop. KSS knee scores improved from an average of 37.0 u00b1 12.5 preop to 82.0 u00b1 8.4 at 1 year. Two patients underwent revision TKA, both secondary to infection. There was no incidence of implant loosening. Conclusion:Tibial components placed in anatomic or constitutional desired varus using intraoperative technologic innovation demonstrated excellent patient satisfaction and improvement in knee function following TKA. Anatomic or kinematic alignment needs to be reevaluated given the current ability to accurately balance flexion/extension gaps and obtain the desired implant and limb alignment.

Book Description :

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the most widely performed intervention for endstage osteoarthritis (OA) but in spite of limitations in surgical techniques, alignment measurements and clinical outcomes, the expectations of an active, aging population continue to increase. The aim of this thesis was to develop and validate a noninvasive kinematic assessment tool to improve the measurement of knee alignment and ligament laxity. An intra-operative infrared tracking system was adapted for non-invasive use through the development of external mountings that enabled alignment measurements to be made supine, standing and following manual collateral stress. Coronal and sagittal plane mechanical femorotibial (MFT) angle measurement was validated to a precision of approximately ±1° by comparison to a custom made leg model, a flexible electrogoniometer and through repeatability measurements on 30 asymptomatic volunteers. Assessment of coronal laxity was quantified and standardised by controlling lever arm, applied manual load and knee flexion angle. Thirty one patients with end-stage OA were assessed before, during and six weeks following TKA and comparisons were made between invasive and non-invasive MFT angles and between supine and standing conditions. For osteoarthritic knees, varus and valgus angular displacements were greater intraoperatively in comparison to pre-operative non-invasive measurements, whereas invasive and non-invasive stress angles for prosthetic knees showed less variation. From supine to bi-pedal stance, MFT angles most frequently changed to relative varus and extension for all knee types suggesting that soft tissue restraints may be more important than rigid bony or prosthetic architecture for controlling this weightbearing alignment change. The development of a non-invasive infrared (IR) system enabled knee alignment to be quantified as a dynamic parameter in comparison to current static assessment techniques such as radiographs. The generation of subject-specific kinematic profiles could help with the surgical planning and post-operative follow-up of patients undergoing alignment dependent procedures such as TKA.

Book Description :

This book presents a compilation of topics related to primary total knee arthroplasty. The chapters cover, in a clear and didactic way, the current themes, written by experts from the area, from different parts of the world. Topics related to the three surgical phases (before surgery, during surgery, and after surgery) are discussed here. This is very important because the surgeon is not a "factory worker." First of all, it is a medicine doctor who has to feel and understand the particularities of each patient. Demographic studies show an aging population. Osteoarthritis and inflammatory diseases are becoming much more prevalent. In addition, a worldwide epidemic of trauma has led to the need for arthroplasties much more frequently. Therefore, total knee arthroplasty will be an increasingly important subject.
