Lateral hinge fracture (LHF) is a common complication after opening wedge high tibial osteotomy. Such a fracture can be caused by many factors such as osteotomy level, amount of opening, hinge position, and kind of plate. In particular, long locking plates have superior biomechanical stability in cases of LHF compared with short plates. Therefore, these long locking plates should be used in cases of LHF after opening wedge high tibial osteotomy.
