Patient Case History: James

Tibia Lengthening and Correction in a Child (pediatric) After Growth Plate Injury


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
James fractured his tibia and injured the growth plate. He had an external rotation and varus deformity as well as 3 cm of shortening.


We did a double level tibia and fibula osteotomy using a Taylor Spatial Frame for gradual lengthening and correction.


End result: equal leg lengths and correction of all deformity.
