Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of the tibial cuts in different bone densities made by a highly experienced orthopedic surgeon on one hand and a less experienced orthopedic surgeon on the other. Methods Tibial models from three different sawbone densities were developed for this study. Each surgeon performed 21 cuts. A coordinate measuring machine was used to analyse the cuts. The K-Cohen test was performed to evaluate the results. The analyzed parameters were guide positioning and deviation from the guide cut to the tibial cut, including varus/valgus angle, the tibial slope, cut height, planarity (mm ), and rugosity (mm). Results There was a significant difference in the positioning of the tibial cut guide between the two surgeons for the tibial slope (p < 0.05), while no difference was observed for the varus/valgus angle (n.s.) and the cut height (n.s.).
