摘要

Morphometrical data were measured in the resected femurs of seventy Chinese patients who underwent total knee arthroplasties. Two measured parameters, the anterior-posterior length of the lateral condyle and the total width of the distal condyle, were compared to the anterior-posterior length and the medial-lateral width of five femoral implants currently used in Taiwan. Three implants (Duracon, NexGen and UKnee) have a larger medial-lateral width than the total width of the resected distal condyle for a given femoral implant anterior-posterior length. These implants tend to overhang the medial-lateral width of resected femurs from Chinese patients. In addition, one femoral implant (Duracon), which has previously been shown to be suitable for use in Caucasian patients, is not suitable in Chinese patients. Our results will allow manufacturers to design femoral implants better suited to Chinese patients.
