Abstract

In valgus and varus knee malalignment in relatively young and active patients, osteotomy has long been recognized as an appropriate option in the management of knee osteoarthritis. Historically, the first high tibial osteotomy (HTO) was performed by Jackson in 1958 with a ball and socket osteotomy below the anterior tibial tuberosity and osteotomy at the middle third of the fibula [1]. Gariepy performed the osteotomy above the anterior tibial tubercle and reported good results in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Following these experiences, HTO was used by several authors. In the same period, opening wedge technique of HTO (Fig. 6.1) was developed in France [3, 4] with medial approach, using allograft or autograft bone and plates that allowed stable fixation. At the end of the 1970s, another technique was described by Maquet: the tibial dome osteotomy [5]. After years of popularity, between the 1960s and 1980s, HTO had a slow decline after good results were demonstrated with unicondylar and total knee arthroplasty and rising surgeon preferences for these techniques. Recent advances in indications and surgical techniques have seen improved outcomes, and a rise in popularity of these important procedures.
