ConclusionThis systematic review provides a detailed overview about the variability of the coronal knee alignment in non-osteoarthritic knees. The broad variability of all coronal alignment parameters highlights the necessity for a more anatomic and individualized approach in knee arthroplasty. It also offers the fundament to understand the changes in osteoarthritic knees.Level of clinical evidenceSystematic review, Level IV.

Arterial endofibrosis is a vascular disease that typically affects the external iliac artery in young patients who undergo extreme exercise, mainly bicyclists.1 The diagnosis is indirectly suspected when these extreme athletes undergo ankle-brachial indices (ABIs) before and after extreme exercise. Whereas the diagnosis can often be suggested by exercise ABIs and computed tomography angiography, the diagnosis is classically best defined by angiography. Dr Cherry and his group were one of the first to recognize this lesion when they described seven patients who underwent replacement or repair of the external iliac artery.
