Abstract

INTRODUCTION AND IMPORTANCE: Anteromedial osteoarthritis (AMOA) is a common knee pathology. However, the best treatment of AMOA remains unclear. Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and high tibial osteotomy (HTO) are surgical options for AMOA patients who do not benefit from conservative treatment. We aimed to show an unusual treatment option where UKA and HTO are performed simultaneously.
