AB  - BACKGROUND: This study investigates the clinical effects of sealing the femoral
      canal by intramedullary alignment instrumentation in total knee arthroplasty
      (TKA). METHODS: One hundred twenty consecutive patients with knee osteoarthritis,
      who underwent unilateral TKA, were enrolled in the study and equally randomized
      into 2 groups: the sealing group and the control group. In the sealing group, the
      femoral canal was sealed with autogenous bone and cement using intramedullary
      alignment instrumentation, while the femoral hole was left open for patients in
      the control group. Blood loss, hemoglobin (Hb) reduction, and other parameters
      were recorded, as well as the duration of hospital stay and complications. The
      Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) knee score was used to assess knee function at
      the final follow-up appointment. RESULTS: The calculated blood loss, hidden blood
      loss, transfusion requirements, drainage volume, and Hb reduction measurements
      were significantly different (P < .05) between the 2 groups. There were no
      significant differences in the surgery time, intraoperative blood loss, length of
      hospital stay, HSS score or complications between the 2 groups (P > .05).
      CONCLUSIONS: Sealing the intramedullary canal with autologous bone and a cement
      plug is an effective method for reducing blood loss and decreasing blood
      transfusion requirements during TKA procedures that have increasing complication
