TKA with a Next-Generation Patient-Specific Knee Implant System
Editor’s Note: Throughout January, we’re giving you a chance to get reacquainted with tips, tricks, and techniques from leading orthopaedic surgeons as we present the best of the best from our collection of surgery videos.
Robert J. Tait, MD, from the Orthopaedic Institute of Henderson in Henderson, Nevada, performs a total knee arthroplasty with a patient-specific implant system on the right knee of a 71-year-old male patient with advanced end-stage osteoarthritis of the medial compartment, in a procedure broadcast live to attendees at ICJR’s 12th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course.
The patient had had his left knee replaced by Dr. Tait 4 years prior to this surgery. Radiographs, including weight-bearing views, showed that the right knee had loss of joint space, sclerosis, diffuse spurring, and widespread degenerative changes.
