Abstract: Patient matched instrumentation is a new operative tool in the field of total knee arthroplasty. Custom made cutting blocks are designed to perform distal femoral and tibial bone cuts according to a pre-operative planning. This study evaluates the Visionaire system of Smith & Nephew. Thirty-one patients, operated with the Visionaire technique, were compared to an equal control group for different clinical and radiographic outcome parameters. Between both groups, no statistical significant difference could be found in post-operative pain, satisfaction, functional outcome, hospital stay, blood loss, radiographic alignment and precision of bone cuts. Only tibial plateau backslope can be created with more precision in the Visionaire group. But there was a statistical significant difference for residual flexion deformity after a mean follow-up time of 200 days.
