TKA mechanical alignment more accurate on hip-knee-ankle radiograph vs. anteroposterior radiograph

Standardized anteroposterior radiographs were insufficient for the accurate assessment of the mechanical alignment of total knee arthroplasty compared with hip-knee-ankle radiographs. Additionally, anteroposterior radiographs exaggerated the varus appearance of mechanical alignment in implants, according to study results.
