Osteotoma de la tibia - Serie

Toggle: English / Spanish

Anatomía normal

Para el soporte apropiado del peso, las articulaciones de la pierna están alineadas de tal manera que el peso se distribuye uniformemente sobre la rodilla.

Anatomía normal

Indicación

Si la osteoartritis degenera la porción interna de la rodilla, la pierna puede arquearse hacia afuera.

Indicación

Procedimiento

Se saca una cuña de la tibia permitiendo que la pierna se desplace ligeramente, lo cual quita peso del interior de la rodilla.

Procedimiento

Tratamiento posoperatorio

Se utilizan tornillos y grapas para sostener el hueso en su lugar. El resultado es una apariencia ligeramente "patizamba" que le permite a la rodilla externa más sana soportar la mayor parte del peso.
