Abstract

In recent years there has been a renewed interest in high tibial osteotomies (HTOs). The development of new instruments and better fixation devices has significantly simplified the surgical procedure. This technique is frequently used to correct alignment in the frontal plane. However, changes in the sagittal plane following closed wedge HTO have not been appropriately investigated. Hence, the purpose of this study was to investigate any possible alteration of the tibial slope introduced by closed wedge HTO. In addition, we also investigated whether there is a correlation between changes of the frontal plane and alteration of the tibial slope in the sagittal plane. In a retrospective study, ..
