Abstract High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is frequently used to treat varus osteoarthritis in younger patients with the goal of delaying the need for total knee arthroplasty (TKA). While it has been reported that the results of TKA following HTO are worse than those in patients without prior knee surgery, the influence of osteotomy technique (medial opening-wedge versus lateral closing-wedge) has not been explored. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of HTO technique on the performance and results of TKA.
