Osteotomies around the knee are well-recognized treatments for unloading the affected compartment in cases of lower limb malalignment. There are few papers in the literature describing the outcomes of distal femoral osteotomy (DFO), as compared with the studies reporting on high tibial osteotomy (HTO), probably because valgus malalignment is less common than the varus one. There is still debate as to what the correct indication is and which surgical techniques lead to the best outcomes in performing a DFO. Besides, it is still controversial whether patellofemoral arthritis should be considered as a contraindication to performing a DFO, as well as in HTO. In this article, we will summarize the indications for DFO, the surgical techniques reported in the literature, and their outcomes.
