Axial parameters affecting lower limb alignment after high tibial osteotomy.

Abstract

Lower limb alignment of 46 knees treated with high tibial osteotomy was studied to find a method for determining the precise correction angle. The femorotibial angle was divided into several axial alignment parameters. Before the operations, the femorotibial angle correlated with the tilting angle of the femoral shaft toward the horizontal (femoral shaft… (More)
