Computer-navigated total knee replacement provides no advantage over traditional surgical procedure
Date:11/21/2012

icine in Seoul, Korea.

Key Findings:

  • Survivorship of the implants at 10.8 years after the operation was not significantly different: 98.8 percent in the computer-navigated TKA group and 99.2 percent in the conventional TKA group.
  • The length of the incision, the intra-operative blood loss, the duration and volume of drainage, and the transfusion volume were not significantly different between the two groups.
  • The mean operative time and time during which the surgeons used a tourniquet (a thigh band to minimize bleeding) were significantly longer in the computer-navigated TKA group than in the conventional TKA group.

"The effect of computer-navigated total knee arthroplasty compared with conventional total knee arthroplasty on long-term implant survival remains unproven," said Dr. Kim.
