Constraints in total knee arthroplasty: current status and review of literature

Saubhik Das, Arkesh M., Rajkumar Selvanayagam

Abstract


Appropriate selection of prosthesis is critical for success of total knee arthroplasty. It is a daunting task of arthroplasty surgeon to choose from a wide array of implant design for a given situation to confer optimal stability, which translates into satisfactory outcome. Contemporary evolution of prosthetic design with various levels of constraints has revolutionized the approach to total knee arthroplasty. This paper deals with the succinct review of the level of constrained prosthesis available for knee arthroplasty.
