Study of functional outcome of medial open wedge osteotomy using puddu plate in relieving knee pain in patients with Unicompartmental Osteoarthritis

Author(s): Avinash Kumar and Venu Madhav HV
Abstract: Of the three joint compartments, the medial compartment is the most common site of knee OA presumably as a reflection of the distribution of loading with the majority of the load being placed on this compartment. This is a prospective study of patients who attended the orthopaedic out pateint clinic in our hospital between September 2010 to October 2012. The patients were evaluated by clinical examination and weight bearing radiographs. Of the 13 knees operated, 4 had excellent outcome, 5 had good outcome, 2 had fair and 2 had poor outcome.
