Conventional high tibial osteotomy for losteoarthritis of the medial compartment of the knee with closed-wedge or dome osteotomy (DMO) may produce shortening of the patellar tendon and loss of inclination of the proximal tibial plateau or of the offset of the tibial condyle relative to its bony axis. This can make subsequent total knee arthroplasty technically demanding. We undertook a prospective study comparing these changes after DMO with those after using open-wedge osteotomy hemicallotasis… CONTINUE READING
