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.
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 aim of this RCT is to show, that in a patient group receiving COLLOSS E combined with TomoFix for medical open wedge high tibial osteotomy, the onset of bone healing is earlier in time...
Medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy has been associated with an unintentional increase in the posterior tibial slope angle. We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a novel bone spreader angle...
High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is effective in treating isolated medial osteoarthritis of the knee, but subsequent deterioration is inevitable, and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is then an option. The pr...
A 68-year-old man with right knee varus osteoarthritis was treated by lateral closed-wedge high tibial osteotomy. A correction loss with non-union occurred 6 months after surgery and a re-correction o...
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).
Mosaic Osteochondral Autograft Transplantation Versus Bone Marrow Stimulation Technique as a Concomitant Procedure With Opening-Wedge High Tibial Osteotomy for Spontaneous Osteonecrosis of the Medial Femoral Condyle.
To evaluate the effects of osteochondral autograft transplantation (OAT) mosaicplasty as a concomitant procedure with opening-wedge valgus high tibial osteotomy (HTO) for spontaneous osteonecrosis of ...
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)
