The effect of epiphysial stapling on growth in length of the rabbits tibia and femur.


In a previous communication (Hall-Craggs 1968) the results of experimental epiphysiodesis of the upper and lower ends of the rabbit tibia were reported. It was found that when growth in length at either the proximal or distal extremity of the bone was restricted by epiphysiodesis a reduction in the normal deceleration of growth rate occurred at the opposite… (More)
