Table 4 Sensitivity of three commonly used ranges for anatomic limb alignment in predicting knees with varus malalignment using the mechanical limb alignment method*

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

Parameter Sensitivity (%) 95 % CI p-value
    5-10° 2-10°
3-9° 35 21.8-51.2 <0.001 <0.001
5-10° 68 51.5-80.4 NA <0.001
2-10° 16 7.6-31.1 NA NA
  1. *Mechanical limb alignment of 37 of 314 (12 %) knees showed varus malalignment
  2. Abbreviations: CI confidence interval; NA not applicable
