Total Knee Arthroplasty Kinematics.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Systematic Review)

Knee kinematics is an analysis of motion pattern that is utilized to assess a comparative, biomechanical performance of healthy nonimplanted knees, injured nonimplanted knees, and various prosthetic knee designs. Unfortunately, a consensus between implanted knee kinematics and outcomes has not been reached. One might hypothesize that the kinematic variances between the nonimplanted and implanted knee might play a role in patient dissatisfaction following TKA. There is a wide range of TKA designs available today. With such variety, it is important for surgeons and engineers to understand the various geometries and kinematic profiles of available prostheses. The purpose of this review is to provide readers with the pertinent information related to TKA kinematics.
