The present study was conducted among a group of Iranian patients suffering from varus knee in order to compare advantages and disadvantages of ROWHTO (Retro-Tubercle Opening Wedge High Ti...
A prospective, randomised controlled trial where clinical and radiological outcome of high tibial opening wedge osteotomy with physiotherapy is compared to physiotherapy alone while treati...
The purpose of this study is to determine wether autologous bone graft from iliac crest enhances bone union of tibial osteotomies, in the treatment of varus knee deformity.
High tibial osteotomy (HTO is often indicated in physically active patients. The insertion of a bone graft during surgery has been shown to have good clinical and biomechanical outcomes, h...
The purpose of this RCT is to determine the results of opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy in patients with genovarum deformity using iliac crest allograft compared to the results when usi...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of a three-dimensional (3D) printed model for open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). This study retrospectively evaluated 20 patients with med...
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether surgical experience could improve surgical competency in medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO).
This article compares the long-term outcomes of closing-wedge osteotomy (CWO) and opening-wedge osteotomy (OWO) in the treatment of unicompartmental medial osteoarthritis with varus deformity. This st...
Medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) entails extensive soft tissue release that may lead to substantial perioperative bleeding. Although tranexamic acid (TXA) is a well-established blood-c...
High tibial osteotomy increases patellofemoral pressure if adverted proximal, while open-wedge HTO with distal biplanar osteotomy discharges the patellofemoral joint: different open-wedge high tibial osteotomies compared to an extra-articular unloading device.
Valgus high tibial osteotomy (HTO) and a recently introduced extra-articular absorber have been shown to efficiently unload the medial compartment of the knee. However, only little is known about the ...
Transverse sectioning and repositioning of the maxilla. There are three types: Le Fort I osteotomy for maxillary advancement or the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort II osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures; Le Fort III osteotomy for the treatment of maxillary fractures with fracture of one or more facial bones. Le Fort III is often used also to correct craniofacial dysostosis and related facial abnormalities. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1203 & p662)
Intraoral OSTEOTOMY of the lower jaw usually performed in order to correct MALOCCLUSION.
Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)
The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)
