Application-Specific Learning Curve in Computer-Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty

4 pagesPublished: September 26, 2020

Abstract

This study employed an advanced method (CUSUM) to analyze the learning curve regarding surgical efficiency (time) using two CAOS applications, which were designed to address user needs with different levels of comprehensiveness in term of offered guidance and instrumentation requirements. Two group of surgeons, each used either CAOS applications were included in the study. The first 50 CAOS TKA cases from each surgeon were analyzed to identify the learning curve. The duration of learning, as well as the impact of learning based on surgical time, were assessed with regard to the specific CAOS application and surgeon’s previous CAOS experience level. The data demonstrated differences in term of pattern of adoption during learning process between the two CAOS applications. However, the learning process was not sensitive to surgeon’s experience level.
