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 Tibial Osteotomy) technique when compared with previously described approaches of opening-wedge osteotomy.
There are various methods for correcting varus deformity; therefore the best surgical method must be individualized. We concluded that in a varus knee where only correction in the coronal plane without patella infra, changes in Q- angle, tibial plateau inclination is all that is needed, a retro- tubercle medial opening- wedge osteotomy is the preferred approach.

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...
Weight bearing in 40 patients undergoing open wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) will be studied during 12 weeks for their post-operative weight bearing using a pressure insole.
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether surgical experience could improve surgical competency in medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO).
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...
The aim of this study was to assess the utility of pressure algometry (PA) to measure pain relief in the medial part of the knee after a closing-wedge high tibial osteotomy (CWHTO).
Low-profile fixation devices for medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) were developed in order to avoid skin irritation and additional invasion. However, the low-profile system is associa...
To identify the structural integrity of the healing site after medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO) in patients with a posterior root tear of the medial meniscus (PRTMM) and chondral lesio...
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.
An inward slant of the thigh in which the knees are close together and the ankles far apart. Genu valgum can develop due to skeletal and joint dysplasias (e.g., OSTEOARTHRITIS; HURLER SYNDROME); and malnutrition (e.g., RICKETS; FLUORIDE POISONING).
An outward slant of the thigh in which the knees are wide apart and the ankles close together. Genu varum can develop due to skeletal and joint dysplasia (e.g., OSTEOARTHRITIS; Blount's disease); and malnutrition (e.g., RICKETS; FLUORIDE POISONING).
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)
