Abstract

Malalignment is associated with an increased rate of loosening of knee prostheses. We present a case of primary knee replacement failure due to pre-existing tibial deformity. Correction of the deformity and associated malalignment was undertaken using the Ilizarov osteotomy method prior to full knee revision surgery.
