Comparison of In Vivo Alignment With TruMatchâ„¢ Personalized Solutions Compared to Conventional Instrumentation in Total Knee Replacement (TKA)
This investigation is intended to provide clinical information about alignment using TruMatchâ„˘ and to compare the results to a conventional total knee replacement. TruMatchâ„˘ will be compared to a historical control study, which compares alignment results of computer aided surgery (CAS) and conventional surgical techniques.
The purpose of this investigation is to determine whether TruMatchâ„˘ alignment is non-inferior to alignment achieved with conventional instrumentation. This investigation will compare long leg alignment in total knee replacement achieved by the two types of procedures. Radiographic analysis will be performed by the same IRR as the historical control study.
The study is designed as a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, clinical investigation to determine whether TruMatchâ„˘ alignment is non-inferior to alignment achieved in a recently completed study (historical control) with conventional instrumentation.
Each enrolled Subject will undergo a total knee replacement using the TruMatchâ„˘ surgical technique. This investigation will require the Subject to be followed once postoperatively to collect radiographs. Follow-up will occur typically 2 to 12 weeks after surgery and when the Subject can achieve full leg extension (=/-5 degrees) and can tolerate weight-bearing.

The purpose of this study is to use better magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to examine the knee and the bony and soft tissue changes so as to better predict the progression of o...
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of OP-1 when it is injected into the knee joint of patients who have osteoarthritis on the knee.
This trial will assess the ability of shoe inserts to relieve pain and disability in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) in the inner (medial) aspect of the knee.
Patients with unilateral or bilateral osteoarthritis of the knee participated in a Phase IV clinical trial to assess the efficacy of Lidoderm compared with celecoxib 200mg in treating pain...
Previous studies suggest that the antioxidants vitamins C and E may protect against development of knee OA. We examined the association of circulating levels of vitamin C and E with incident whole kne...
Self-reported knee joint instability compromises function in individuals with medial knee osteoarthritis and may be related to impaired joint mechanics. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the r...
The pathophysiology of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture leading to knee osteoarthritis (OA) remains largely unknown. It seems that bone loss occurs after ACL rupture. The purpose of our study...
The purpose of this paper was to investigate the relationship between static varus knee alignment and the radiographic markers of knee osteoarthritis (OA), including joint space narrowing (JSN) and Ke...
