We present a long term evaluation of 100 high valgus tibial osteotomies with a mean follow up of 11 years. Knees with slight or moderate osteoarthritis had the best results. Slight overcorrection was beneficial, but gross overcorrection was not.

There were few complications and the overall long term results were good.
