MIS Total Knee Arthroplasty Muscle-Sparing Arthrotomy

Company : Zimmer Inc

UMDC Code : 102165

Successful total knee arthroplasty depends in part on reestablishment of normal lower extremity alignment, proper implant design and orientation, secure implant fixation, and adequate soft-tissue balancing and stability. The operative technique for the standard total knee arthroplasty (TKA) involves a skin incision between 16 cm (6 in) and 30 cm (12 in). In comparison, when Dr. Luke Vaughan started talking about a "shorter incision" in 2000 for primary total knee arthroplasty, he suggested that 10 cm (4 in) was a good starting point and the incision could be extended if needed.
