In the clinic, valgus knees are relatively infrequent. To achieve a balance between the soft tissue and bone and prevent nerve injury, treatments for valgus deviations >20° provide a surgical challenge. The implications of lower-limb valgus deformity greater than 20°, a unique condition, have not been thoroughly examined in many articles. We described a 66-year-old woman who had a severe, permanent valgus deformity in her right knee. The patient's right knee had a preoperative range of motion (ROM) of 30-95° of flexion and a 25° permanent valgus deformity.
