Corrective osteotomy for the treatment of genu recurvatum. Surgical technique

Abstract

Genu recurvatum is a debilitating deformity characterised by hyperextension of the knee over 15 degrees resulting in an abnormal distribution of the load that can progress during growth and lead to significant deformity and arthrosis if left underestimated. Recurvatum can be osseous, ligamentous, or mixed. Osseous genu recurvatum is usually caused by asymmetrical growth arrest of the proximal tibial physis affecting primarily the tibial tubercle. Here is reported a technique of osteotomy in addition for the treatment of primary and secondary genu recurvatum.
