Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: navigated TKA Procedure: Implantation of a Total Knee Arthroplasty

In all patients a cemented, unconstrained, cruciate-retaining TKA with a rotating platform (ScorpioTM PCS, Stryker Orthopaedics, Mahwah, NJ) was implanted. No patellar resurfacing was performed. A medial parapatellar approach with a femur-first preparation was done in all cases.

The Stryker Navigation System, Knee Navigation Software V3.1 (Stryker Orthopaedics, Mahwah, NJ) was used for computer-assisted implantation.

The conventional implantation was performed with femoral intramedullary and tibial extramedullary standard alignment guides.

  • ScorpioTM PCS
  • Stryker Navigation System
  • Stryker Knee Navigation Software V3.1

Detailed Description:
  1. Component position, kinematics After skin closure lateral x-rays were done in different flexion angles in order to evaluate the kinematic behaviour of the TKA.

    A full-length standing and a lateral radiograph as well as CT scans of the hip, knee and ankle joint were performed 5 to 7 days postoperatively before discharge.

  2. clinical outcome Patient sociodemographic and anamnestic data were collected. The written interview was complemented by the EuroQol questionnaire (release EQ-5D) and the assessment of the patients' functional status (Knee Society Score) one week before surgery and 18 to 24 month after surgery.
