Abstract

Increased sagittal plane posterior tibial slope has been identified as a risk factor for primary anterior cruciate
ligament reconstruction (ACLR) failure. Although ACLR failure is multifactorial, correction of sagittal plane posterior tibial
slope should be evaluated in patients with an ACLR graft rupture. There are limited technical descriptions of proposed
decreasing tibial slope osteotomy procedures; therefore, the purpose of this Technical Note is to describe the current senior
author’s technique of performing an anterior closing wedge proximal tibial osteotomy to decrease sagittal plane tibial slope
in patients requiring a revision ACLR.
