Résumé : The number of patients presenting valgus deformities undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) represents approximately 10% of the total number of TKAs performed: the presence of valgus deformity requires the implant to have proper alignment, stability and balance to achieve successful clinical outcomes, especially for knees with high coronal deformities, but these have proven to be difficult goals to achieve and therefore the use of constrained prostheses is often recommended for these cases. However, even though the use of unconstrained mobile bearing for severe knee deformities is rare, it has been shown to give successful outcomes and therefore the aim of this study is to evaluate whether this surgical technique can achieve satisfactory clinical results and correct alignment, as well as good patient satisfaction.
