Abstract

Postoperative deformities of the knee and sequaelae after intraarticular surgery can interfere with a standard parapetallar approach for intramedullary stabilisation of the tibia. Even the suprapatellar approach can be rendered impossible. For these rare indications we describe the patella osteotomy and transpatellar approach.
