Abstract

Despite additional costs associated with the use of computer navigation technology in total knee replacement (TKR), its impact on quality-adjusted life years following surgery has not been demonstrated. Cost-effectiveness evaluations require a balanced assessment of both quality and cost metrics.This review sought to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of computer navigation, identify barriers to translation, and suggest directions for further investigation. A systematic search of the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis Registry, PubMed, and Embase was undertaken.Cost-effectiveness analyses of computer navigation in primary total knee replacement were identified. Only primary studies of cost-effectivene..
