Leg length discrepancies and axis deformities

A number of children orthopaedic diseases result in shortening of legs or arms as well as axis deviations. Frequently, in our operations, we have to combine correction of axis deviations with lengthening or shortening of extremities. At an age where enough potential of growth remains, axis deformities or length discrepancies often can also be corrected by temporarily inhibiting the growth plates through a very little operation.
