INTRODUCTION The decrease of patellar height following opening-wedge proximal tibial osteotomy can affect function, and subsequent total knee arthroplasty may be more difficult and give poorer results. HYPOTHESIS Pre-operative patellar height is an objective predictor of functional result in opening-wedge osteotomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS The effect of opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) and internal fixation on patellar height and its functional outcome were assessed. Forty supra… CONTINUE READING
