Abstract
High tibial osteotomy is the most widely used surgical method to treat osteoarthritis with combined varus deformity of the knee. This treatment is associated with a highly satisfactory clinical outcome providing that patient selection and surgery performance are carried out accurately. Commonly, the medial open-wedge or the lateral closed-wedge high tibial osteotomies are used. In this review, we give a thorough investigation of the factors related to the indications, preoperative assessment, execution, complications, rehabilitation process, and current opinions of medial open-wedge osteotomy of the high tibia.
