Abstract: The aim was to study the long term effect of PFO on the predominant medial compartment osteoarthritis knee. In initial period of one year, 40 patients with predominant medial compartment osteoarthritis were operated in department of orthopaedics and followed up for three years. In our study, the average age of presentation was 64.1 year. The outcome was evaluated radiologically by using FTA, JCA and clinically by AKSS score and VAS score. Follow up was done according to set proforma. At final follow up, mean FTA improved to 181.8 +1.159 degree from 184.05 + 1.694 degree preoperatively and JCA improved to 3.13+ 1.223 degree from 1.3+ 0.853 degree preoperatively (both values were significant P<0.001). Mean AKSS improved to 85.95 + 12.989 at final follow up from 33.55 +1.085 preoperatively and VAS score improved to 1.87 +1.261 from 8.55+0.02 preoperatively (both values were significant P<0.001).It was concluded that PFO is a new and cost effective surgery for predominant medial compartment osteoarthritis of knee with better functional outcome of patients and significant decrease in pain as compared to the conventional treatment modalities.
