From: How accurate is anatomic limb alignment in predicting mechanical limb alignment after total knee arthroplasty?

Fig. 1

The anatomic tibiofemoral angle (ATFA) was measured as a surrogate of anatomic limb alignment. The anatomic femoral axis was identified by drawing a line between the notch center of the femoral components and a point 15 cm above the lowest point of the lateral femoral condyle, in the middle of the femoral shaft. The anatomic tibial axis was defined as a line joining the point on the bisector of the tibia, 15 cm below the highest point of the lateral tibial plateau and the center of the tibial component surface.
