The successful use of an equine enzymatically deantigenated bone wedge in open-wedge high tibial osteotomy technique 

The aim of the present study was to confirm the effectiveness of adding nanohydroxyapatite (NHA) to a heterologous bone graft in open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) by measuring the bone density via multislice computed tomography (CT) of the tibial osteotomy gap in a mid-term follow-up (five years).

This study revealed that absorbability and bone formation at the osteotomy site in the NHA group was significantly higher as compared with the pure graft group at five years postoperatively.
