    Angular coronal deformities around the knee are common in pediatric orthopedic practice, surgical treatment is needed when the deformity persists or progress after correction of underlying biochemical abnormalities. Corrective osteotomy unlike in adults is not satisfactory in growing children due to potential complications, therefore growth modulation surgeries are preferred in children. Staples and screw hemiepiphysiodesis are associated with permanent damage to the physis and growth disturbances. The titanium-based figure of 8 plates were introduced to overcome growth plate injuries and growth disturbances in growth modulation surgeries.We aim to evaluate the functional results of 8 plates in growth modulation in angular knee deformities. In this study, we had 25 knees in 16 patients with coronal angular deformities, with Genu Valgum in 18 knees (6 B/L) .. Read More»
