BACKGROUND Further knee surgery after proximal tibial osteotomies has been reported to have a more difficult surgical exposure due to decreased patellar height after the osteotomy. Although a decrease in patellar height has been reported for closing-wedge proximal tibial osteotomies, it has not been widely verified among opening-wedge procedures. HYPOTHESIS A significant decrease in patellar height would result after opening-wedge proximal tibial osteotomies and a postoperative change in… CONTINUE READING
