Abstract Introduction :

Medial-open-wedge-high-tibial-osteotomy (MOWHTO) is a widely used surgical technique for the treatment of medial compartment osteoarthritis. An unintended increase of the posterior tibial slope (PTS) is a frequently reported consequence. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of different sagittal cutting orientations on the PTS.


Materials and methods :

Sixty Sawbone-Tibia models were used to produce biplanar MOWHTO. Three different orientations of the main osteotomy in the sagittal plane were produced: parallel to the medial tibial plateau (p-OT), 11° posteriorly ascending (90° to the anterior tibial cortex; a-OT) and 11° posteriorly descending (d-OT). In each group, 20 biplane osteotomies were performed, 10 with distal and 10 with proximal tibial tubercle osteotomy (TT). Medial opening was achieved with 3 D printed wedge-guide and 10 mm metal wedge. The PTS was measured prior and after the MOWHTO using the fast protocol, Brainlab knee 3 navigation system. Pre- and postoperative values were subtracted to calculate the difference in slope, where negative numbers describe an increase in PTS.

Results :

There was a significant difference in change of PTS after the osteotomies were performed between
p-OT -1.5 ± 0.7° and a-OT groups -0.9 ± 0.7° (p=0.044). We found statistically significant differences across subgroups in change in PTS between the p-OT ATT distal -1.7 ± 0.6° and the a-OT ATT distal -0.5 ± 0.6° (p=0.013) and between a-OT ATT distal -0.5 ± 0.6° and the d-OT ATT proximal -1.8 ± 0.8° (p=0.005).

Conclusion :

In current study different sagittal osteotomy orientations in MOWHTO had no or minor significant modification of PTS on Sawbone models with probable very low clinical relevance.
