Abstract

There is a resurgence of interest in HTO to treat young to middle aged patients with varus alignment and isolated medial joint osteoarthritis. With improvements in implant design and preoperative planning methods, good outcomes are reported in multiple studies. But the most important factor for a successful outcome is patient selection. The ideal patient would be a middle-aged patient with isolated medial joint arthritis with good range of movements, non-smoker and with reasonable functional status of knee. The indications of HTO are evolving to include patients in higher age groups, with minimal to moderate patellofemoral symptoms and varying amounts of flexion deformities. It is also increasingly being performed as a joint protective surgery following meniscus repairs and cartilage repair procedures and to correct abnormal joint alignment following neglected ligamentous injuries.

Abstract

Ankle arthroscopy has evolved rapidly within the last twenty-five years and is now the principal method of treatment of ankle disorders. It would be prudent for an aspiring orthopaedic surgeon to include this technique in his or her armamentarium of surgical techniques. This will provide the surgeon an inclusive option to obtain accurate diagnosis and to discuss management options with the patient. The minimally invasive technique is biologically friendly by preserving the soft tissue envelope. This will also meet patient expectations to achieve an earlier and predictable functional recovery from ankle pathology. This review article will briefly mention historical aspects and outline the basic technique and relevant benefits of ankle arthroscopy. Indications and contra-indications of ankle arthroscopy will be discussed with pertinent review of literature. Complications and outcomes of the procedure will also be highlighted.
