The discipline of limb lengthening has undergone numerous advances over the last few years. The neurologic complications surrounding this procedure are well established and described in the clinical setting, and can be deleterious for the patients in distraction osteogenesis protocols. The specific aims of the reported project were: 1) to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND Periosteum is an osteogenic, flexible tissue. This study investigated the osteogenic potential of vascularized periosteal flaps in heterotopic conditions and compared it to the neo-osteogenesis from vascularized periosteal flaps combined with bone grafts with different properties (autologous and xenograft). METHODS Vascularized periosteal flaps(More)
The characteristic pattern of fusion of distal tibial epiphysis explains the special configuration of the fragments in the triplane fracture and the "juvenile" fracture of Tillaux in adolescents. The application of external rotation force produces Tillaux and triplane fractures of the lateral portion of the distal tibial epiphysis in patients with a mean(More)
