41 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) or quasi-RCTs were identified to examine whether computer-assisted surgery (CAS) would lead to superior mechanical leg axis and implant positioning compared to conventional technique in patients with primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Results for leg axis and coronal positioning of femoral and tibial components indicated a statistically significant reduct...
