Achievement of appropriate mechanical knee alignment is crucial to ensure optimal clinical outcomes following osteotomy procedures about the knee. The use of patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) to assist in preoperative planning and intraoperative realignment has gained increasing popularity. The purpose of this article is to describe a surgical technique involving a medial closing wedge high tibial osteotomy performed using three-dimensional (3D) PSI and cutting guide to revise residual valgus deformity following failed distal femoral osteotomy. The correction angle, 3D position of the hinge and wedge, as well as final plate and screw position are planned preoperatively using virtual software and computed tomography imaging to allow precise surgical execution.
