Yash Srivastava [2] | Sanjay Kumar [38]


Abstract: Objective: The aim of study was to evaluate the effect of proximal fibular osteotomy in relieving pain and functional improvement in patients of osteoarthritis knee. Method: In a period of 2 year (November 2020- November 2022), 14 patients with predominant medial compartment osteoarthritis were operated in department of orthopaedics, GSVM medical college, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. 2 cm long fibula was resected 7 cm to 10 cm distally from head of fibula and outcome were evaluated by using Knee Society Score (KSS) and Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) score. Results: The mean visual analogue scale (VAS) score decreased from 7.46 ? 1.12 (range 6 to 9) preoperatively to 7.15 ? 1.21 (range 5 to 9) postoperatively (P<0.05). Pre-operatively, the mean knee society score (KSS) was 54.54 ? 11.89 and postoperatively score were 54.11 ? 15.06 (P>0.05). Post-operatively 2 patient (14.28%) developed weakness of Extensor halluces longus which recovered within 6 month and 1 patient (7.16%) developed numbness over lateral aspect of foot which recovered within 6 weeks. Conclusion: In short term study, Proximal Fibular Osteotomy does not provide significant pain relief and functional wellbeing to the patients of knee osteoarthritis.
