Abstract


Within the period from 2000 to 2009 thirty patients (35 observations) at the age of 21-69 years were treated in orthopaedic department No 6 for deforming arthrosis of the knee joints, using video-and-arthroscopic technique. Treatment-and-diagnostic arthroscopy with subsequent tibial valgus-producing subcondylic osteotomy was performed in 27 patients, two patients underwent arthroscopy of the knee with subsequent femoral valgus-producing epicondylic osteotomy, and one patient – arthroscopy with subsequent varus-producing subcondylic osteotomy. Long-term results were traced in 29 (96,7%) patients, good results of treatment were observed in 100% of cases.
