PCL preservation not advantageous over resection in mobile-bearing TKA
Preservation of the posterior cruciate ligament is not helpful in highly conforming mobile-bearing total knee arthroplasty: a randomized controlled studyKnee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc. 2013 Dec;21(12):2850-9. doi: 10.1007/s00167-012-2265-2. Epub 2012 Nov 1

69 patients (90 knees) scheduled for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with a highly conforming, mobile-bearing insert were randomized to have the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) either retained for resected during surgery. The purpose was to determine if PCL preservation led to better kinematic and clinical outcome. Intraoperative kinematic measurements indicated that PCL-preserving TKA was associa...
