Summary of "Guidelines for Instrumentation for Total Knee Replacement Based on Frontal Plane Radiographs."

The objective of this study was to measure the dimensions and the angulations of the femur and tibia for arthritic knees that were scheduled for total knee surgery. The purpose was to provide information for the design of surgical instruments such as cutting guides. Instruments made using three-dimensional printing were a particular consideration because of the variations in sizing that are possible.
