Applications of computer navigation in sports medicine knee surgery: an evidence-based review. Current reviews in musculoskeletal medicine Young, S. W., Safran, M. R., Clatworthy, M. 2013; 6 (2): 150-157


Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) has been investigated in a number of sports medicine procedures in the knee. Current barriers to its widespread introduction include increased costs, duration, and invasiveness of surgery. Randomized trials on the use of CAS in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction have failed to demonstrate a clinical benefit. Data on CAS use in high tibial osteotomy are more promising; however, long-term studies are lacking. CAS has a number of research applications in knee ligament surgery, and studies continue to explore its use in the treatment of osteochondral lesions. This article reviews the applications of CAS in sports medicine knee surgery and summarizes current literature on clinical outcomes.
