Benefits of Imageless Computer Navigation in Total Knee Arthroplasty
Imageless computer navigation was introduced as a standard implantation technique for total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) more than a decade ago. According to arthroplasty registers, 11% of all TKAs in Western Australia, 2% in the United Kingdom, 19% in Norway, and 0.7% in Sweden have been implanted by use of computer navigation. These regional distinctions show that the debate over whether navigation is a feasible technique is still in progress.
