Correct vs. Incorrect Placement of Knee Prosthetics
Correct vs. Incorrect Placement of Knee Prosthetics

This exhibit is divided into correct and incorrect placement sections. The left half illustrates how knee prosthetics are normally aligned within the femur and tibia. This is done with a full render of right leg from pelvis to foot with the hardware included, a superior view of the tibial prosthetic, and a zoomed inset of the hardware within the knee. The right half illustrates, with the same three views as the left, how the femoral and tibial component of the patient were misaligned and internally rotated, making the foot rotate outwards when weight was placed on it.
