RESUMO

Although computer-assisted navigation has been used in clinical practice for more than 15 years, it has only recently started to gain acceptance in a variety of orthopedic procedures. Different types of computer-assisted navigation are available, which allow the surgeon to obtain real-time feedback and offer him the potential to decrease intraoperative errors. However, its increased cost and lacking evidence of long-term superiority have made many surgeons skeptical about its clinical usefulness. The scope of this article is to review the clinical applications of computer-assisted navigation in orthopedic surgery of the knee joint.
