Abstract

A varus-producing distal femoral osteotomy (DFO) is an effective technique for the treatment of lateral patellar instability (LPI) in patients with concomitant moderate to severe valgus malalignment. Patellar maltracking and subluxation are corrected via neutralization of some of the laterally directed forces on the patella due to the valgus deformity. This can be accomplished with a distal femoral lateral opening-wedge or medial closing-wedge osteotomy and medial soft tissue stabilization. A medial closing-wedge osteotomy offers the advantages of immediate weight bearing and a single incision in cases requiring patellofemoral soft tissue stabilization. In this article, we describe our preferred operative technique for a medial closing-wedge DFO using a femoral locking plate and medial patellofemoral ligament imbrication for the correction of LPI.
