The main object of corrective osteotomy in varus or valgus deformity of knee is obtaining near normal mechanical axis of lower limb, tibia and femur. In patients with bow leg who have tibia vara in addition to genu varum in tibia and fibula correction of genu varum by only high tibial osteotomy (HTO) could not be correct this axis by: 2. In the adolescent with severe genu varum with marked malalignment of the mechanical axis of the lower limbs, occasionally osteotomy of the tibia or hemiepiphysiodesis of the distal femur and/or proximal tibial physis is indicated to correct the deformity. It is difficult to calculate the exact age for by:   Evaluation of Deformity: X Rays • Radiographs of the lower limbs: • Long films (51 Inches) • Frontal plane (AP view)(Patella Forward) Sagittal plane (Lateral view) Square the Pelvis in case of Limb Length discrepancy 9. Evaluation of Deformity: CT Scan • CT Scanogram Abstract. There is a diverse range of residual deformities following septic arthritis and osteomyelitis of the pediatric lower limb. Most of the postinfectious juxta-articular and articular deformities of the lower limb arise from complex pathology, often related to delayed .

In severe deformities bony procedures are done along with soft tissue surgeries. Osteotomy is done to correct deformity of bones. Arthrodesis is done to correct deformity of joints. Let us now take a close look at one pioneering technique - limb deformity and limb length discrepancy correction by . We are excited to have reinvented the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course (BLDC) to an online, virtual BLDC this year. This format will provide our registrants and industry partners an exciting, safe, and convenient web-based platform to learn, exchange ideas, and showcase important developments in the orthopedic subspecialty of limb lengthening deformity correction. Genu varum (bow legs) denotes the varus angular deformity of the knee joint, where the leg is bowing outwards at the knee, while the lower leg is angled medially. Pathology Genu varum is physiologic in neonates and infants and reaches its peak. Thus far, the text has concentrated primarily on static deformities of the lower limbs: bone deformities and joint contractures. In comparison, dynamic deformities are related to joint position.

The authors prefer the use of a tension band system to achieve either a permanent or a reversible epiphysiodesis for the management of angular deformity or limb length inequality in patients with open growth plates. In the clinical example used for the technique of epiphysiodesis, the patient was a year-old boy with genu valgum of the right lower extremity (Fig. ). An illustration of an open book. Books.

Dear all, Matija Krkovic and Fouzia Katun are heading out to Slovenia to be faculty on this Limb Reconstruction course. Details of the course are listed below and it sounds like a fantastic course for those looking to gain and insight into Limb Reconstruction and Frames. THURSDAY, MARCH 22 Time Registration Welcome.
