The proximal tibia is the upper part of knee prosthesis composition and the bottom part of knee prosthesis position.


To evaluate the importance of the proximal tibial morphological measurement in clinical knee replacement.


With “knee; prosthesis; replacement” in Chinese and English as key words, a computer-based retrieval from January 1995 to October 2011 was performed for papers in terms of magnetic resonance imaging measurements on prosthetic rotational alignment in clinical prosthetic knee replacement.


The morphological measurement of proximal tibia includes three-dimensional finite element model, relevant parameters and angle, as well as biomechanics research, which is all closely related with the selection and design of the prosthesis. Morphometry of the proximal tibia can be divided into two-dimensional and three-dimensional measurements, and the later is more accurate to measure tibial plateau width and tilt angle, tibial anteroposterior diameter, these measurement data have great application prospect in the clinical practice. Proximal tibial is the bottom part of knee prosthesis position, while the proximal tibial three-dimensional models can simulate and dock prosthetic model bottom, thus improve the success of the operation.
