Limb lengthening by way of slow distraction of the epiphysis. An experimental study



Limb lengthening by way of slow distraction of the epiphysis. An experimental study



Zhonghua Wai Ke Za Zhi 27(3): 177



The results of limb lengthening by way of slow distraction of the appropriate epiphyceal plate on 25 lamb limbs were investigated clinically and radiologically, and scrutinized histologically by light- and electron microscopic examinations. It has been proved that lengthening of 0.4 mm per day by way of slow distraction would not cause epiphysiolysis, and that lengthening took place as a result of increased osteogenesis and augmented endochondral ossification in the epiphyseal plate, being induced by distraction at a slow rate. Points about limb lengthening by way of epiphysiolysis and of slow distraction of epiphysis were compared and discussed.
