Scientific Reporting of the Outcome and Evaluating the Efficacy of Biplanar Lateral Distal Femoral Osteotomy: Two Years Follow up Study

Introduction: Genu valgum could be approached by uniplanar or biplanar osteotomy in which site
union and postoperative knee range of motion play important roles in technique selection.
Methods: Study was performed on 30 cases including 14 males and 16 females. Two of them had
severe genu varum deformity and 28 had genu valgum. Participants underwent biplanar lateral distal
femoral osteotomy. Osteotomy requirement was assessed by Lateral distal femoral angle
measurement.
Results: Thirty patients underwent the biplanar procedure over the 4 years. Two years follow up
showed complete union, full knee range of motion and within the acceptable alignment.
Conclusion: Biplanar osteotomy is an effective method to create the wider inner cancellous surface
to achieve better osteotomy site union and knee range of motion.
