Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in the valgus knee is often considered to be more complex than in the varus knee, and multiple differing techniques have been proposed to achieve a good outcome in these patients. These include variations in surgical approach, differing methods for attaining appropriate component alignment, and numerous methods to address soft tissue balancing. In this chapter, a case is presented showing one combination of these variations in a single patient, and a brief literature review is undertaken to address the most debated topics in TKA of the valgus knee.
