Fig. 2. Weight bearing line (WBL) extending from the center of the femoral head to the center of the ankle joint with a crossing point at the knee joint. The WBL percentage was then calculated as the horizontal distance from the WBL to the medial edge of the tibial plateau divided by the width of the tibial plateau. (A) Preoperative mechanical axis (A/B). (B) Postoperative mechanical axis (A′/B). The mechanical axis was shifted to a point 62% lateral on the transverse diameter of the tibial plateau. A, A′: horizontal distance from the WBL to the medial edge of the tibial plateau, B: width of the tibial plateau.
