Further study details as provided by Mayo Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether mechanical axis of the limb malalignment differs between patients whom have computer-assisted TKA and those treated with conventional intraoperative instrumentation

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the frontal alignment of the femoral and tibial components from full length standing radiographs
  • To compare sagittal alignment of the femoral and tibial components from lateral radiographs
  • To compare the rotation of the femoral and tibial components from CT Scan.

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: June 2004
Study Completion Date: April 2007
Primary Completion Date: April 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Primary data to be obtained is to determine whether mechanical axis of the limb malignment differs between patients whom have computer-assisted TKA and those treated with conventional intraoperative instrumentation.

Three months after surgery follow-up radiographic data will provide evidence on the initial implant position as determined with a series of x-rays including: full length standing, standard AP weight bearing, lateral, patellar, kneelingfilm views and CT evaluation. In addition, a correlation betweeen the CT measures and the kneeling x-ray can be performed at this time. Clinical (Knee Scale Society, WOMAC, and SF-36) data will also be obtained at the three month interval.
