Influence of the distal femoral resection angle on the principal stresses in ceramic total knee components

The Knee, 05/08/2012

When implanting the ceramic component in total knee arthroplasty, the femoral resection angles should be prepared very precisely, in particular anterior saw blade deflection has to be avoided. The implant manufacturer increased implant safety through an additional resection template. Moreover, the impaction of the ceramic femoral component during cementing was not further recommended by using a hammer.
