Abstract On three occasions we have reviewed a series of knees after high tibial osteotomy for osteoarthritis: 99 were reviewed at one to two years; 81 at a mean of 5.7 years; and 65 at a mean of 11.9 years. At one to two years and at 5.7 years over 50\% were good and over 75\% acceptable. At 11.9 years, 43\% were good and 60\% acceptable. We determined the mechanical axis through the knee in maximum varus and maximum valgus; significantly better results were found if a mean angulation of 3 degrees to 7 degrees of valgus had been achieved at operation. We also measured intercondylar distances under varus and valgus stress, and found no significant lateral compartment narrowing. The best results were seen in knees with pre-operative grade I or grade II osteoarthritis and valgus deviation after osteotomy.
