Abstract

Besides patients having an acute rupture of the ACL with a clear therapeutical strategy there are increasingly young patients with chronical anterior instability and degenerative arthritis of the medial compartment and varus malalignment. This constellation is taxing severely the operative procedure considering that there is not only the instability which has to be treated but that also an improvement of the arthritis symptomatology has to be achieved. In this paper we present a therapeutical concept of high tibial osteotomy combined with an arthroscopic assisted reconstruction of the ACL which is performed as a single procedure since the early 80-ies. The goal is to remove two severe arthrogenic factors correcting the instability and the pathological anatomical axis, to reduce the medial knee pain and to improve the use of the knee in life activities.
