Abstract

Medial wedge opening high tibial osteotomy (MWOHTO) is effective for managing a variety of knee conditions, varus malalignment of the knee, either secondary to osteoarthritis or residual adolescent tibia vara, are among the indications, fixation may be done using different methods (Stables, T-plate, Budu plate, and TomoFix). We are describing our technique of performing (MWOHTO) fixed with titanium T plate supplemented with an extra screw from the lateral side which we call “extra-focal” screw to obtain biplanar fixation which may add to the rotational stability at the osteotomy site.
