Upper Tibial Hemicallotasis Using the OF-Garches

  • S. Toksvig-Larsen


The rationale for performing a proximal tibial osteotomy is to correct abnormal loading of the arthrotic knee caused by deviation of the mechanical axis.3,14 Medial osteoarthrosis is the most common, but lateral arthrosis, which comprises about 5 per cent of cases,3 requires special consideration in terms of whether the corrective osteotomy should be performed in the tibia or the femur.6
