51 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee were randomized to receive either intramedullary or extramedullary tibial instrumentation, during minimal invasive surgery in total knee arthroplasty (MIS-TKA). Leg alignment and tibial slope were measured throughout the course of the study in order to determine which instrumentation resulted in better alignment, and as a result, increased TKA survival r...
