This biomechanical study tested three commercially available fixation devices for medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). A medial opening wedge HTO model was created on replicate tibias. Fixation was achieved with one of three fixation devices: VS Osteotomy plate (EBI, Parsippany, NJ), Arthrex Osteotomy plate (Arthrex, Naples, Fla), and OsteoTrac plate (DJ Orthopedics Inc, Vista, Calif). For each fixation system, seven specimens were cyclically loaded in compression and torsion under… CONTINUE READING
