Abstract

A technique for measuring the desired angular correction and plate selection for an opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy has been developed by the lead author using a modification of a technique described in the literature by Miniaci et al. Using the preoperatively measured desired angular correction to accurately determine the appropriate plate selection is unique to our system and is necessary to avoid correction especially in the face of a patient whose tibia plateau width is greater than 60 mm. This technique also limits radiation exposure by eliminating intraoperative measurement that is highly inaccurate. Although described for a high tibial osteotomy in conjunction with a medial meniscus transplant or osteochondral transfer, the technique can be effectively used for terminal procedures.
