Total Knee Arthroplasty Robot Assisted With MAKO Robotic System Compared to the Conventional Total Knee Arthroplasty by Mechanical Ancillary


Brief description of study

For the total knee arthrorplasty (TKA), the placement of a prosthesis is delicate and the correct positioning of the implants determines the result of the surgery.

Navigation has improved surgical accuracy but remains inadequate with nearly 20% malposition. In the early 2010s, robot-assisted surgery solutions were born. Amongst its offers, Stryker's MAKO system appears to be the most advanced and developed due to its precision and its flexibility of use during surgery.

In this study, the investigators evaluate the placement of the total knee prosthesis with the MAKO system compared to the placement of the total knee prosthesis with a conventional mechanical system for TKA
