Part of Deformity Correction Of Lower Limb Bones
Fig. 9a

When there is Malalignment or Malorientation in femur or tibia bones in sagittal plane, the proximal and distal bone segments have their own proximal mechanical axis (PMA) or proximal anatomical axis (PAA) line and distal mechanical axis (DMA) or distal anatomical axis (DAA) line respectively in the sagittal plane (Fig. 9a)

Fig. 9b

Draw anatomical axis of proximal shaft and anatomical axis of distal shaft. The point of intersection of the axes is CORA and the magnitude of acute angle formed is the magnitude of correction angulation required (Fig. 9b)

Fig. 9c

Draw anatomical reference line from proximal joint line of tibia at (1/5th width of condyle) and anatomical axis of the shaft or anatomical reference line at normal ADTA angle of 80 from the distal joint line. The point of intersection of the axes is CORA and the magnitude of acute angle formed is the magnitude of correction angulation required (Fig. 9c)
