Alignment of Knee - Measured Mechanical Axis From CT Data [ Time Frame: postoperatively - CT done within 1 week of surgery ]
the mean knee mechanical axis was determined from 3D CT data - negative value designates varus alignment
alignment of knee components from CT of lower extremity [ Time Frame: immediate postop CT ]
A postoperative CT of the total knee replacements in these 2 groups of patients will be compared.

Preoperative Alignment of Total Knee Replacement
Alignment of Total Knee Components Using Standard or Custom Instrumentation
The hypothesis of this study is that total knee alignment will be improved by preoperative planning from CT scans and the production of custom instruments compared to the use of standard instruments.
Patients will be randomized to have either customized knee instruments or standard generic instrumentation for primary total knee replacement. Postoperative CT scan will be used to determine alignment of each group.
