PURPOSE Biomechanical properties of locking plate and angle blade plate constructs in opening-wedge distal femur osteotomy were compared, with special attention to the impact of opposite cortex breakage and buttressing. METHODS Forty-eight synthetic femora underwent a lateral opening-wedge distal femur osteotomy, which was fixed either with a locking(More)
BACKGROUND Rotational osteotomy is frequently indicated to correct excessive femoral anteversion in cerebral palsy patients. Angled blade plate is the standard fixation device used when performed in the proximal femur, but extensile exposure is required for plate accommodation. The authors developed a short locked intramedullary nail to be applied(More)
