BASK 2016 Poster Submission – combined osteotomy & ACL reconstruction

Correction of knee malalignment with ACL reconstruction aims to restore knee stability while addressing symptomatic unicompartmental osteoarthritis. This is a single-centre series of patients who underwent such a combined procedure.

Although the combined procedure is technically challenging and requires careful pre-operative planning, it represents an attractive alternative to arthroplasty surgery in this cohort of young patients.
