We quantified and compared the combined impact of femoral bowing and rotation on measured FVAs and differences in the condyle resection thickness to evaluate the validity and reliability of this new radiographic measurement of the distal femoral condyle resection thickness (DRT) for use in planning TKA.
The sinus tract traced down to a hole approximately 15 x 15 mm in the cortex of the medial femoral condyle.
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.
The joint itself is formed by 4 separate articulations with synovial cavities that intercommunicate: the medial femoral condyle articulates with medial meniscus and tibiotarsus; the lateral femoral condyle articulates with the lateral meniscus, tibiotarsus, and fibula; the patellar sulcus articulates with the patella; and the proximal tibiotarsus articulates with the fibular head.
If the blade is inserted correctly into the condyles, anatomical alignment of the femur can be obtained by fixing the plate to the shaft of the femur.

Secondly, in mandibular trauma during childhood, the condyle region is affected in 36 to 50% of subjects.
4 months; 80% had femoral and femoral condyle fractures.
Medial and lateral tibial plateau and femoral condyle cartilage thicknesses were measured using the coronal FS PD sequence through the mid portion of the joint, at which point the confirmation was performed with the sagittal cross-sectional images.
