Conference paper


Today much is known about human gait, joint mechanics, and the functional adaptation of bone and cartilage. With this knowledge we are able to analyze the pathologic sequelae of trauma and their effects on joint function and derive corrective measures from the result of this analysis. Arthroplasty appears to be justified only if other types of corrective surgery have no prospect of success. This particularly applies to the knee joint.
