BACKGROUND Guided growth is most commonly utilized about the knee and ankle for the correction of coronal-plane deformities by the use of plates positioned perpendicular to the physis. Sagittal-plane deformity correction has been described as well. The purpose of our study was to examine the ability to affect axial-rotational growth. Our hypothesis was that placement of plates in an oblique orientation relative to the physis can induce rotational growth deformity. METHODS Our hypothesis was… CONTINUE READING
