Is the contralateral tibia a reliable template for reconstruction:a three‑dimensional anatomy cadaveric study


Schenk, Pascal; Vlachopoulos, Lazaros; Hingsammer, Andreas M; Fucentese, Sandro F; Fürnstahl, Philipp (2017). Is the contralateral tibia a reliable template for reconstruction:a three‑dimensional anatomy cadaveric study. Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy, 25(11):3431-3438.

Abstract

The contralateral anatomy is regularly used as a reconstruction template for corrective osteotomies of several deformities and pathological conditions. However, there is lack of evidence that the intra-individual differences between both tibiae are sufficiently small to use the contralateral tibia as a 3D reconstruction template for complex osteotomies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the intra-individual side differences of the tibia in length, torsion, angulation, and translation using 3D measurement techniques.
