Opening-Wedge Proximal Tibial Osteotomy.

ABSTRACT: Varus knee malalignment caused by medial compartment arthritis results in progressive asymmetric wear of the tibiofemoral joint. This wear can cause progressively painful gonarthrosis. Surgical methods to address varus knee malalignment include lateral closing-wedge proximal tibial osteotomy, medial opening-wedge osteotomy, and arthroplasty. Medial opening-wedge proximal tibial osteotomy is an effective procedure for restoring proper coronal alignment and reducing knee pain. In this technical note, we present a reproducible technique for proximal tibial osteotomy.
