Problem: The goal of cruciate retaining total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is to preserve the integrity of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in an effort to optimize performance and maintain joint stability. However the PCL can be compromised during tibial resection that either removes too much bone [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
