Effects of the amount of valgus correction for medial compartment knee osteoarthritis on clinical outcome, knee kinetics and muscle co-contraction after opening wedge high tibial osteotomy.

Abstract

The goal of opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) is to reduce excessive loading on the medial compartment of the knee by correcting varus deformity, thereby reducing pain and improving function. Although surgical outcome is reportedly poor in cases of under- or overcorrection, the recommended alignment varies. The aim of this study was to investigate… (More)
