PANCORBO SANDOVAL, Enrique Armando et al. Fibular osteotomy, new surgical technique in the painful genu varum: procedure and two-case presentation. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.4, pp.966-974. ISSN 1684-1824.

Knee osteoarthritis could be a very disabling disease due to the symptoms it produces, characterized by pain, insecurity and functional loss. It is a degenerative disease which prevalence has increased in the last decades tightly related to the increment of the population’s life expectancy, phenomenon occurring in the developed countries with a high life level and also occurring in our country because of the development of our health system. There are several surgical techniques to correct deformation and to relieve pain. They go through correcting osteotomies to arthroplasties, all of them aimed, firstly to pain relieving and also to correcting deformations. The last ones need more rehabilitation time and are more expensive. This work is devoted to presenting two patients operated with the new technique of Dr. Yin-Ze Zhang, from the Department of Orthopedic Surgery of the Third Hospital of the Medical University of Hebei, in Shijiazhuang, China, with which, through an osteotomy, the internal compartment is decompressed and the bone tension in the external one is finished due to the peroneal excision. Its aims are acting upon the pain, improving function and gait as a benefit of this minimal action procedure on the articular parts and achieving the faster incorporation of the patient to his social life; this is the theme the main author of this article is going to develop for obtaining the doctorate in sciences.

Palabras clave : painful genu varum; fibular osteotomy; pain relieving.
