Different Anatomical Axes for The Proximal and Distal Parts of the Femur

According to this study, researchers estimated the concept of different anatomical axes for the proximal and distal parts of the femur; compare these axes in normally aligned subjects and to propose the clinical application of these axes. The anatomical axis of the femur is crucial for determining the correct alignment in corrective osteotomies of the knee, total knee arthroplasty (TKA), and retrograde and antegrade femoral intramedullary nailing (IMN).
