- NTR NumberNTR4734
- ISRCTNISRCTN no longer applicable
- Date ISRCTN created

- Date Registered NTR13-aug-2014

- Public TitleRadiological evaluation of CT vs MRI based Signature™ for total knee arthroplasty A Prospective, Randomized Study
- Scientific TitleCT vs MRI based Signature™ for TKA
- ACRONYMCT, MRI, Patient Specific, TKA
- hypothesis• CT based Signature™ will result in a comparable percentage of prosthesis that is placed correctly (within guidelines of 3 degrees varus and 3 degrees valgus).
• CT-based Signature™ will result in a comparable alignment of the prosthesis as calculated by software and the actual alignment in vivo after knee surgery.
• CT-based Signature™ will result in comparable changes of plans.
• CT-based Signature™ will result in result in comparable percentages of outliers of the limb and of the individual prosthesis components.
- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedTotal knee arthroplasty, Computed tomography, MRI, Osteoarthritis
- Inclusion criteria- Patients scheduled to undergo primary TKA replacement with any of the following indications
• Painful and disabled knee joint resulting from osteoarthritis.
• High need to obtain pain relief and improve function,
- Body-mass-index (BMI) <35
- Ability and willingness to follow instructions, including control of weight and activity level, and to return for follow-up evaluations.
- Consent form read, understood and signed by patient.
- Exclusion criteria- Active infection in knee
- General infection
- Distant foci of infections which may spread to the implant site
- Failure of previous joint replacement
- Pregnancy
- Previous major knee surgery, except for arthroscopic meniscectomy.
- Metal near knee joint (MRI-scan not possible)
- Not able or willing to undergo MRI-scan or CT-scan
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Non-correctable varus axis

- planned startdate 1-mrt-2014
- planned closingdate1-jan-2015
- Target number of participants140
- InterventionsTKA aligned either with the CT based Signature™ or the MRI based Signature™ alignment guide.
- Primary outcome• Outliers in alignment of the femoral and tibial prosthesis in the frontal plane, measured on radiographs made 6 weeks after operation and compared between the CT-based Signature™ procedure and the standard MRI-based Signature™
- Secondary outcome• Fit and practical use of the guides
• Needed change of plans and reasons for changes
• Occurrence (and percentage) of outliers in alignment in the frontal, sagittal and horizontal plane of femoral and tibial components.
• Occurrence (and percentage) of outliers in alignment of the mechanical axis of the leg.
• Difference in thickness between the in vivo inserted polyethylene and the pre-operatively calculated thickness of this insert.
• Accurateness of guides: deviations from pre-operative digital plan.
- TimepointsPre-, 6 weeks post and 1 year post operative
