Abstract

Catch-up growth is believed to result from a central nervous system mechanism that compares actual growth to a set point and adjusts growth velocity accordingly. Alternatively, we hypothesized that catch-up growth is intrinsic to the growth plate. To test this hypothesis, we infused dexamethasone phosphate for 4 weeks directly into one proximal tibial… (More)
