Chondrodysplasia punctata mimicking Blount’s disease: Interestingly, the third patient had migration maladje 1 screw through the physis. Loading Stack – 0 images remaining.

Skeletal disorders Orthopedic problems Knee injuries and disorders Pediatrics Syndromes affecting bones.

In patients with full correction, the average length of treatment from initiation to completion was Although the number of patients in this study was relatively small, it appears that there could be a correlation between Langerskiold classification and limits of correction.

Some authors have addressed modification of technique, opting to defer pre-drilling the screw holes. Log in Sign up. Guided growth for angular correction: One patient was lost to follow-up shortly after treatment. Case 10 Case When overcorrected d 3 to 5 degrees, we have not seen recurrence of pathologic varus alignment in our other patients.

Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: The tibial shaft is in the varus position, and the epiphysis is wedge-shaped, fragmented or can b,ount absent. Check for errors and try again. Patients with pathologic tibia vara present at various ages and have historically undergone various treatments ranging from bracing to tibial osteotomy based on age at presentation.

Cases and figures Imaging differential diagnosis. Until latestaples were the only implant specifically available for hemiepiphysiodesis.

No ce or bracing was utilized postoperatively. C AP standing full length after removal of hardware. Relative tibial and femoral varus as a predictor of progression of varus deformities of the lower limbs in young children. In the infantile patients, we noted spontaneous correction of inward tibial torsion and secondary rotational osteotomy was not required.

This patient eventually went on to have a multi-planar osteotomy with application of a spatial frame on the right side but had msladie correction of the varus deformity on the left to require an isolated distal tibial rotational osteotomy to correct the excessive torsion. Treatment of adolescent tibia vara with hemiepiphysiodesis: Our rationale is that bllount is no obvious difference in the underlying pathology, but only differences in patient age and body habitus at presentation.

Probable dominant inheritance in Blount’s disease. Case with hidden diagnosis. While we do not know the current status of his lower leg alignment, we do know that he at least initially corrected.

Open in a separate window.

For less severe deformities, hemiepiphysiodesis offers the advantage of a less invasive procedure with fewer major complications. Methods This was an IRB approved, single institution, retrospective cohort study.

His residual deformity was treated with a hemiepiphysiodesis which later resulted in normalization of his mechanical alignment. Thus, our experience would indicate that hemiepiphysiodesis may offer the delayed benefits of safe, gradual correction of malrotation and ligamentous laxity that occurs as the mechanical axis is restored to neutral.


OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine. A relative lack of growth of the medial proximal tibial physis occurs, likely secondary to an increase in compressive forces on the proximal tibial physis.

Blount’s disease

Other information collected from review of patient charts included sex, age at surgical naladie, and perioperative complications. To sort this out, larger numbers of patients would need to be studied so that the analysis could adequately control for age and Langerskiold classification.

The infantile type is 5x more frequent than the others and is seen particularly in early walkers. He was a year-old male who failed to return to clinic after his lower extremity alignment had corrected and his hardware had been removed. Immediate mobilization and full-length weight-bearing was encouraged after surgery.

Clinical Synopsis Toggle Dropdown. Children who develop severe bowing before the age of 3 may be treated with knee ankle foot orthoses.

Failed prior treatment including osteotomy was not considered as exclusion criteria. This may result mwladie disability if the discrepancy is significant greater than 1 inch and is not treated. One of the patients underwent bilateral inward rotational supramalleolar osteotomies at the time of tension-band plate application for tibia vara and went on to complete correction of both deformities.
