Surgical and Conservative Management of Angular Limb Deformities
Sunday, July 01, 2012 11:40 AM - 12:30 PM
The appropriate management of angular limb deformities requires knowledge of growth plate anatomy and closure times, as well as conservative and surgical techniques to correct them. Many angular limb deformities can be corrected conservatively with changes in management and corrective trimming/shoeing. In the cases that require surgical intervention, timing and appropriate choice of technique are important. Techniques for growth acceleration and growth retardation are discussed, as well as adjunctive therapies. Complications and expectations of surgical correction are also reviewed.
