Of importance, for patients with severe varus or valgus deformity of the knee combined with significant femoral rotation, and for whom standardized positioning is not feasible, our findings recommended that clinicians should use full-length radiographs of the lower limb, planning the resection amount of the medial and lateral distal femoral condyles, which are less influenced by femoral rotation status.
There are several anatomical studies in the literature reporting the importance of morphometric variations of the occipital condyles (Kumar & Nagar, 2014, Kavitha et al, Natsis et al, Bayat et al.
It is supposed that the advancement promotes stretching of the muscle fibers, and the condyle is positioned more anteriorly in the glenoid fossa, elongating the tendons and stimulating the region of the retrodiscal pad.
Apposition of the femoral condyles is improved in relation to the tibial condyle compared to previous images (arrow).
In terms of anatomical reduction, all the cases have both the condyles at the distal end aligned and confirmed by on table radiographs and post-operatively also.
Lower stump was re-contoured to simulate condyle to avoid any sharp margins.
Mandibular asymmetry is associated with the core of condyle growth, which can directly or indirectly regulate the size of the condyle, condylar neck length and the length of the ramus and mandibular body.
There was an inability to close mouth, absence of condyle from the glenoid fossa resulting in a palpable preauricular depression, and a prominent appearing lower jaw.
In addition, a bony spur (osteophyte) on medial side of right occipital condyle was found.
The tibial portion of the knee joint consists of the tibial plateau, separated into tibial condyles via the intercondylar eminence composed of a lateral and a medial tubercle.
Fracture of the occipital condyles may result in increased morbidity associated with long-term cranio-cervical pain and reduced neck mobility (4).
