INTRODUCTION Torsional abnormalities of the leg may cause instability and pain in the patellofemoral joint. Although derotation osteotomies seem logical to address these conditions, there are very few surgical results reported in the literature. HYPOTHESIS Isolated tibial derotation osteotomies relieve patellofemoral pain and instability even in the event of combined femoral and tibial torsion abnormalities. AIM Test this hypothesis in a retrospective and continuous series of thirty-six… CONTINUE READING
