This study aimed to determine limb and component alignment after computer-assisted total knee arthroplasty in 30 patients (32 limbs) with an altered hip center due to a prior hip implant or deformed femoral head. There were no outliers greater than ±3° in the postoperative coronal alignment of the limb and the femoral component in relation to the altered hip center. Two limbs (8%) were more than ±3° for coronal alignment of the femoral component in relation to the anatomical hip center and 96% of limbs had less than 2° deviation in relation to the altered hip center. Computer-navigated total knee arthroplasty results in accurate restoration of lower limb and component alignment in patients with prior hip implants or deformed femoral heads where accurate restoration of alignment may be challenging due to altered hip center.
