BACKGROUND Valgus high tibial osteotomy (HTO) may be associated with changes in the patellar height and posterior tibial slope. HYPOTHESIS Patellar height increases and posterior tibial slope decreases after closed-wedge HTO, whereas patellar height decreases and tibial slope increases after open-wedge osteotomy. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS Lateral radiographs of 100 knees were assessed for patellar height (PH) (Insall-Salvati index [ISI], Caton-De Champ index… CONTINUE READING
