143. Navigated total knee replacement. A meta-analysis. (Full text)

Navigated total knee replacement. A meta-analysis. BACKGROUND: Proponents of navigated knee arthroplasty stress its potential to increase the precision of component placement. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to substantiate the validity and relevance of this contention. METHODS: We searched major medical and publishers' databases for randomized trials and any other studies comparing navigated with conventional knee arthroplasty. Major periodicals were searched manually. We (...) interval, -0.2 degrees to 0.5 degrees). Patients managed with navigated surgery had a lower risk of malalignment at critical thresholds of >3 degrees (risk ratio, 0.79; 95% confidence interval, 0.71 to 0.87) and >2 degrees (risk ratio, 0.76; 95% confidence interval, 0.71 to 0.82). No conclusive inferences could be drawn on functional outcomes or complication rates. Navigation lengthened the mean duration of surgery by 23%. CONCLUSIONS: Navigated knee replacement provides few advantages over
