Abstract

The tibial resection depth during total knee arthroplasty for valgus knees has been variously described and not been standardized yet. Accordingly, it has been proposed in this article, that the sulcus between the medial and lateral intercondylar tibial tubercles can be used as a reference point for the tibial resection depth. The resection can be performed 8 to 9 mm distal to the sulcus.
