Abstract

We report two cases of patients with concurrent osteoarthritis of the knee and the ipsilateral ankle. Patients were treated with high tibial osteotomy (HTO). In well-planned and selected cases, HTO may be effective in treating not only the knee but also the ankle in patients with ipsilateral double-joint osteoarthritis.
