In a nutshell: Patients who had undergone either cruciate-retaining (CR) or ultra-congruent (UC) total knee arthroplasty were followed up after 3 years. Patients with posterior cruciate ligament resection using the UC design showed comparable functional outcomes with those of CR total knee arthroplasty and provided similar in vivo stability.
