Bifokale, femorale und tibiale Torsionsosteotomie – Die operative Therapie des ‘Inwardly pointing knee‘ Syndrom
A ‘inwardly pointing knee’ syndrome is a combined torsional deformity with increased femoral internal and tibial external torsion. After clinical and radiological verification of the torsional deformity and unsuccessful conservative therapy approach, a combined (double level) torsional osteotomy of femur and tibia might be the appropriate treatment. Here, we present the diagnostic algorithms, treatment, and outcome of combined torsional osteotomies of femur and tibia. The aim of the study is to show that patients treated with the procedure achieve patellofemoral stability and pain relief or reduction.
