Abstract

The valgus osteotomy can correct Shepherd's crook deformity, prevent recurrent fracture, and restore alignment, thus improve functioning of limb. The intramedullary nail with neck cross pinning should be the first consideration of internal fixation. Massive impaction allograft is the key technique to improve full incorporation of allograft and to prevent pathological fracture.
