Opening Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy , Microfracture , and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate for Treatment of Varus Deformity and Osteoarthritis of the Knee

  title={Opening Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy , Microfracture , and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate for Treatment of Varus Deformity and Osteoarthritis of the Knee},
  author={Evan W. James and Keith T. Corpus and Austin T. Fragomen and S. Robert Rozbruch},
Osteoarthritis in the setting of varus deformity can be difficult to treat in young and middle aged patients. Treatment options typically include arthroplasty versus joint preservation techniques. In young and middle aged patients, unicompartmental or total knee arthroplasty is often considered a less desirable treatment option due to the increased likelihood of requiring revision arthroplasty later in life. Joint preserving techniques, which combine a high tibial osteotomy to restore a neutral…

Biomechanical and Functional Improvements Gained by Proximal Tibia Osteotomy Correction of Genu Varum in Patients with Knee Pain

It is suggested that bilateral proximal tibial osteotomy may be effective in improving knee biomechanics during gait and correcting mechanical alignment in patients with bilateral genu varum to alleviate symptoms and potentially decrease further clinical deterioration.



Chondral Resurfacing and High Tibial Osteotomy in the Varus Knee

With 91% survivorship at 7 years, microfracture/HTO seems to contribute to a delay of knee replacement in active patients with varus gonarthrosis.

Medial Opening Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy for Medial Compartment Overload/Arthritis in the Varus Knee

OWHTO is a reliable procedure for medial knee arthritis/overload with correct indications, according to the outcomes reported, although the variables related to outcomes are slightly different.

Osteochondral Autologous Transfer Combined With Valgus High Tibial Osteotomy

Combined OAT and valgus HTO is an option to successfully treat patients with deep osteochondral defects of the medial femoral condyle and concomitant varus malalignment and can be expected up to 8.5 years postoperatively.

Evidence is presented that a proximal tibial osteotomy, properly planned and performed, can give consistently sat-sfactory results even in osteoarthritic knees which have preoperative varus deformities greater that 15 degrees or are subluxated.
