Distal femoral osteotomies have been performed by the authors to correct valgus knee in children with chronic renal failure. Valgus deformities appear in patients suffering from renal osteodystrophy around the age of 14. Stress is laid on the importance of correct medical treatment in these patients as cases of spontaneous correction of moderate deformities with medical treatment have been reported. In addition, the success of surgical treatment depends on the correction of bone metabolism.
