120 patients were randomized to undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with an intramedullary guide set at either a fixed femoral valgus angle (FVA) of 7 degrees compared to an FVA measured on long preoperative hip-knee-ankle radiographs. The purpose of this study was to determine if a preoperatively measured FVA provides more accurate mechanical alignment and individual component positioning, and ...
