The impact of knee laxity following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on post-operative knee dynamics is not fully understood, and knee kinematics and kinetics likely influence patient perceptions, clinical performance, and component wear. The purpose of this study was to characterize intraoperative knee laxity and identify any relationship to frontal plane knee excursion or peak varus moments during gait. No significant associations were identified in 25 participants two years following surgery.
