Dr. Incavo Publishes Total Knee Arthroplasty Research Findings in the Journal of Arthroplasty

Dr. Incavo recently co-authored the article, Impact of Valgus vs Varus Mechanical Axis Correction During Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty on Postoperative Periarticular Bone Mineral Density, which was published in the Journal of Arthroplasty.

The purpose of the study was to determine if the nature and magnitude of alignment correction (ΔAlign°) performed during primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA)

 had an impact on bone mineral density (BMD) at the metaphysis of the distal femur (DFmr) and proximal tibia (PTb).
