About the book

Total knee arthroplasty is an important treatment strategy for patients with chronic refractory pain. Total knee arthroplasty is usually suggested in cases where conservative treatment failed. It has been proved to reduce pain and improve function, contributing to enhanced quality of life in patients with chronic diseases. With aging of the population and increased life expectancy, it is estimated that the number of TKA will increase over the years ahead.
The main cause of failure in TKA remains malaignment so preoperative planning and understanding of the principles are crucial in TKA.
The aim of this book is to discuss preoperative planning, surgical principles, strategies and particular situations in total knee arthroplasty. This book is intended to contribute to the achievement of better results and functional scores in TKA.
