Özet

High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is an important treatment alternative in isolated single compartment knee osteoarthritis. To achieve adequate mechanical axis corrections in the lower extremity fibula is also osteotomized concomitantly. The aim of this study was to compare the union rates of proximal and diaphyseal fibular osteotomies accompanying high tibial osteotomies.
