Techniques in Knee Surgery, 06/08/2012

A relatively new technique of high tibial osteotomy will be illustrated in this article with careful step–by–step presentation of all the details of the operation.

It is based on a special dedicated system of instruments and plates developed by Puddu et al in the early 1990s.
