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

Fig. 4

The anatomic alignment errors of the tibial components were probably caused by medialization of the proximal tibia relative to the distal shaft of the tibia due to the deformity of the proximal tibia vara. In this particular case, coronal alignment of the tibial component was interpreted as valgus malalignment using the anatomic alignment method even when the mechanical component alignment was within neutral ± 3.
