Anterior Closing Wedge Proximal Tibial Osteotomy for Slope Correction in Failed ACL Reconstructions


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 […]

Tibial Slope and Its Effect on Graft Force in Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstructions


Background:

A flattened posterior tibial slope may cause excessive unwanted stress on the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction graft and place patients at risk for PCL reconstruction graft failure. To date, there is a paucity of biomechanical studies evaluating the effect of posterior tibial slope on the loading properties of single-bundle (SB) and double-bundle (DB) […]

Clinical Outcomes of High Tibial Osteotomy for Knee Instability


OJSM 2016

In recent years there has been an increasing interest in high tibial osteotomy (HTO) to treat patients with chronic knee instability due to posterolateral corner (PLC), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) insufficiencies with concurrent malalignment in the coronal and/or sagittal plane.

The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic […]
