The Spectrum of Total Knee Replacement

  • Richard S. Laskin
Chapter

Abstract

A surgeon performs a total knee replacement arthroplasty in order to recreate a joint with a pain-free functional arc of motion and with stability in the coronal and sagittal planes. These goals remain constant whatever total knee prosthesis is used. For any particular patient, however, the choice of prosthesis may vary, depending upon the pathological anatomy. This chapter provides an overview of many of the available prostheses and sets up some guidelines as to which appear most suitable for certain clinical situations.
