Opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy continues to have a role in young active patients today. It is being used in combination with ligamentous and cartilage procedures for improved joint homeostasis with satisfactory early results. Our described technique with a single bone cut allows incremental increases in distraction for precise deformity correction, achieving satisfactory survival in midterm follow-up. The modern opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy represents a valid alternative for young patients for correction of varus deformity and early medial compartment osteoarthritis.
