Biomechanical Implications of an Oblique Knee Joint Line. The journal of knee surgery Hooper, J. M., Walker, P., Hsu, T. T., Kurtz, A., Reynolds, R., Hennessy, D., Chu, A. 2018; 31 (8): 761-766


Surgical correction of multiapical deformities of the lower limb requires careful preoperative planning. Surgeons must account for the potential creation of secondary deformity, such as knee joint line obliquity, and the risks associated with accepting these changes in limb alignment. In this study, we evaluate the effect of knee joint obliquity on tibial plateau contact pressures and knee instability. Three cadaveric knees were dissected and put through biomechanical testing to simulate loading of an oblique knee joint. We observed?
