Dear all,

>From the literature there seems a general 'understanding' that left and
right knees have similar geometry. Does anyone know of any published data
confirming/refuting this assumption. Yoshioka, Siu and Cooke (JBJS 69-A(6):
873-880) have published data concerning the anatomy and functional axes of
the femur. They also compared data on paired femora. I haven't been able to
find any other published data.

Please reply to me with any suggestions and I will summarise for the list.
