    LAS VEGAS - At the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting, Jeffrey H. DeClaire, MD, FAAOS, discussed a multicenter study in which a robotic-assisted system was used for total knee arthroplasty planning in 266 patients.
    The patients underwent TKA with knee balancing done within 0.5 mm as measured by a the OMNIBot robotic-assisted system. Researchers focused their analysis on laxity difference on the medial and lateral side of the knee in extension, mid-flexion and flexion. They then correlated those laxity parameter findings with the KOOS pain score,
