Abstract

Computer navigation for total knee arthroplasty is increasingly used because it improves the accuracy of femoral and tibial components implantation. However, every new technique is associated with its own complications. Here, we report on a patient who developed a distal femoral stress fracture after two attempts at fixing the navigation tracker.
