Title:
The effect of closed- and open-wedge high tibial osteotomy on tibial slope: a retrospective radiological review of 120 cases. 
Abstract:
Radiographs of 110 patients who had undergone 120 high tibial osteotomies (60 closed-wedge, 60 open-wedge) were assessed for posterior tibial slope before and after operation, and before removal of the hardware. In the closed-wedge group the mean slope was 5.7 degrees (SD 3.8) before and 2.4 degrees (SD 3.9) immediately after operation, and 2.4 degrees (SD 3.4) before removal of the hardware. In the open-wedge group, these values were 5.0 degrees (SD 3.7), 7.7 degrees (SD 4.3) and 8.1 degrees (S...    »
