Orthosensor vs Conventional Total Knee Arthroplasty

In a randomized-controlled fashion, this investigation will evaluate the use of the Verasense technology to achieve optimal TKA balance. Patients will be randomized to either: 1) undergo manual soft tissue balancing or 2) soft tissue balancing with the Verasense. The primary outcomes of interest will include patient-reported outcomes as well knee range of motion at 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years. Secondary outcomes of interest will include pain level as assessed by the visual analogue scale (VAS) in the acute post-operative and follow up periods, ambulation distance during inpatient physical therapy postoperatively, surgical time, tourniquet time, amount of opioid consumption, length of hospital stay, incidence of arthrofibrosis and subsequent manipulation under anesthesia. The investigators hypothesize that the use of the Verasense technology will lead to improved soft tissue balancing in TKA and ultimately result in favorable patient-reported outcomes and postoperative knee range of motion.
