Osteoarthritis of the Knee is one of the commonest Orthopedic diseases seen in India. Our center has consistently performed hundreds of knee repair surgeries for patients who have high demand fro m their knees and wish to retain, repair and strengthen their knees using High Tibial Osteotomy(HTO) surgery rather than Replacing them with Joint Replacement. The History, rationale, planning and various surgical methods are discussed.
This is a lecture delivered on modern High Tibial osteotomy. A comparison of two techniques is made with the same type of Dome osteotomy but fixed using either an Ilzarov apparatus or a Tomofix Locking plate.
TCVO: A new type of Intra-articular High tibial Osteotomy
Many patients with severe varus deformities and medial compartment osteoarthritis have an intra-articular deformity. The TCVO is an operation designed in Japan which involves an intra-articular osteotomy akin to a hemi-plateau elevation. This may be done as a isolated intra-articular correction or as a combined Intra- & extraarticular correction.
