Abstract

THINK Surgical TSolution-One® is an active-autonomous, image-based, robotic milling system which enables the surgeon to attain a consistently accurate implant component positioning. The TSolution-One® system is capable of achieving this through an image-based preoperative planning system which allows the surgeon to create, view and analyse the surgical outcome in 3D. The accuracy and precision of component positioning have been attributed to the following factors: customized distal femoral resection, accurate determination of the femoral rotational alignment, minimization of errors and maintenance of bone temperature with robotic milling. Despite all these advantages, there is still a paucity of long-term, high-quality data that demonstrates the efficacy of robotic-assisted total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Questions regarding radiation risks, prolonged surgical duration and cost-effectiveness remain unanswered. This paper aims to describe: (1) TSolution-One® surgical technique; (2) limitations and complications; (3) clinical and radiological outcomes.
