Questionnaire: Biomechanical data demonstrate a higher fixation stability of a plate fixator compared to a spacer plate for the fixation of an open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). There are no in vivo data quantifying and comparing the fixation stability of different HTO implants. As a consequenc[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
