Man is a natural being which, insofar as he is rational, is "nature" not to the same standard as the other natural beings, but in a way that brings with it the principle of its own regulation and measurability, not only as a natural inclination built into him in a passive way, but, as Thomas Aquinas expressly maintains, in an active way as well, since man is to a certain degree "a law unto himself." Only that which has been regulated and put into order by the reason is "human nature," where this active principle of order, the practical reason, belongs to this nature as its dominant part.

LCOA progression due to an altered stress pattern in the cartilage has been described in the literature.[7] Wear of lateral compartment has been attributed to abnormal cartilage stress, which can be strongly related with the postoperative lower limb alignment.[8],[9] In addition, the tibial component inclination may affect the contact stress and load percentage in the lateral compartment.[10],[11] Numerous finite element (FE) analyses of UKA have already advised on the postoperative lower limb alignment and inclination of the tibial component, but their results vary.[10],[12],[13] The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of the postoperative lower limb alignment and the tibial component coronal inclination on static knee biomechanics after mobile-bearing UKA using FE analysis.
