  37. 37. Lateral Open Wedge Distal Femur  single cut  easier approach to femur  easily adjustable correction  supratrochlear area disrupted  weak medial hinge point  plate location complaints  very unstable if hinge point fractures  slowest bone healing role of grafts unclear
  38. 38. Methods of osteotomy Fixation  Cast immobilisation  Staples  Plate and screw  External fixator  Distraction osteogenesis. Correction can be adjusted after surgery. But pin tracts create a potential problem for subsequent TKA
  39. 39. Complications  Inadequate valgus correction  Overcorrection – PFJ derangement  Alteration in patella height  Intra-articular fracture  Osteonecrosis of the tibial plateau
  40. 40. Complications  Vascular injuries – anterior tibial artery, popliteal artery  Peroneal nerve palsy  Delayed or non-union  Compartment syndrome  TKR more difficult  Varus laxity (loose LCL)
  41. 41. Open wedge HTO Advantages  Easier to achieve precise angular correction  Preserves bone stock (subsequent TKR is technically easier)  Makes tightening of the MCL easier  Preserve the lateral side for LCL or posterolateral reconstruction if insufficient  No risk to peroneal nerve  Less dissection
  42. 42.  Requires a bone graft (substitute, autograft, allograft)  Increased incidence of non-union and delayed union  Large correction may affect leg lengthening  Loss of fixation and recurrence of varus deformity  Worsens patella Baja Open wedge HTO Disadvantages
  43. 43. OW-HTO  Delayed union/nonunion rates were 2.6%, 4.6%, and 4.5% for autograft, allograft bone, and synthetic bone substitutes, respectively  Non-locking plates (n = 2,148) had a rate of delayed union/nonunion of 3.7% and a mean loss of correction over time of 0.5°   Locking plates (n = 681) had a rate of delayed union/nonunion of 2.6% and a loss of correction of
  44. 44. Coventry report Outcome  5-year survival of 87%  10-year survival of 66%  However the 5-year survival was reduced down to 38% when valgus angulations at 1 year was less than 8º in a patient whose weight was more than 1.32 times the ideal weight.
  45. 45. Outcome  Obesity and inadequate correction were negative prognostic factors.  Age < 50 years to be a positive prognostic factor  Joint line preservation is key to success.

  47. 47. Valgus high tibial osteotomy reduces pain and improves knee function in patients with medial compartmental osteoarthritis of the knee.
  48. 48. Principles Uni Knee  Appropriate for 25% of osteoarthritic knees needing replacement  Never release the MCL  Polyethylene dislocation rate is 1/200 after medial compartment UKR (Oxford)  Polyethylene dislocation rate is 10% after lateral compartment UKR  Dislocation rate can be reduced by using a fixed bearing UKR.
  49. 49. ? What are the Absolute contraindications for Unicompartmental knee replacement? What are the Advantages and disadvantages?
  50. 50. Uni Knee Advantages • Retains knee kinematics • Restores function and range of movement • Rapid recovery: 3X faster than TKR • Less blood loss • Cost less than TKR (all factors considered) • Quicker operation than TKR • Quicker return to work than after TKR • High flexion lifestyle.
  51. 51. Uni Knee Advantages • Lower infection rate (halved) compared with TKR • Allows minimally invasive approach • Easier to revise than HTO? • No patellar fractures or dislocations • Maximises the longevity of total knee arthroplasty • Reduced incidence of DVT • Reduced mortality from pulmonary embolism
  52. 52. Prerequisites  Intact ligaments (especially ACL and PCL)  Correctable varus deformity  Less than 10° FFD  Flexion beyond 100°  Clinically asymptomatic PFJ and contralateral compartment.
  53. 53. Contraindications  Inflammatory arthritis  Sepsis  Young age  High level of activity.
  54. 54. Relative contraindications  ACL degeneration  Chondrocalcinosis  Lateral meniscectomy  Osteonecrosis  Combined obesity and small bone size in some women.
  55. 55. Management options for medial compartment OA HTO suitable for high-demand, young patients UKA (better functional results, much better 10-year survival – 98% versus 66%)

Editor's Notes

  • Good after
    My name is Banaszkiewicz
    For this first section I will be taking you through examination of the hip
    I have no disclosures to make
  • Nonoperative
    strategies may include patient education, exercise,
    weight loss, bracing, analgesia, non-steroidal antiinflammatory
    drugs (NSAIDs) and possibly intra-articular
    (IA) injections. Although many of these treatment methods
    are employed the evidence for their benefit is mixed.
  • Opening wedge. The weight-bearing line is determined by measuring from the point located at 62.5% of the width of the tibial plateau to the center of the femoral head and from that point on the tibial plateau to the center of the ankle. The angle formed at the intersection of these lines (ie, α angle) represents the angle of correction. The osteotomy line (ab) is defined from medial (≈4 cm below the joint line [a]) to lateral (tip of the fibular head [b]). The line segment ab is transferred to the rays of the α angle from the vertex to obtain line segments aibi and aic. The distance bic corresponds to the opening that should be achieved medially at the osteotomy site. This distance is measured in millimeters.
  • Tibial bone varus angle
    (TBVA) is the angle between a
    line from the centre of the tibial
    spines to a point midway the
    proximal tibia epiphysis, and
    the mechanical axis line of the
  • Planning of a medial closing-wedge supracondylar
    A) The present mechanical axis is drawn from A, the
    center of the femoral head, to B, the centre of the ankle
    joint. Line B-C is of equal length as line A-B and passes the
    knee just medial of the medial eminence representing the
    desired postoperative mechanical axis.
    B) The hinge point of the osteotomy (D) is marked just
    proximal from the upper border of the lateral condyle and
    0,5−1 cm within the lateral cortex. The angle of correction
    (α) is defined by line A-D between the present femoral
    head centre and the hinge point and line C-D connecting
    the new femoral head center position and the hinge point.
    C) Correction angle α is projected at the distal femur using
    two oblique down sloping lines of equal length converging
    at the hinge point. The distance measured between those
    2 lines at the level of the medial cortex (arrows) represents
    the osteotomy wedge base length to be removed during
