Mineral Content of the Bone in Humeral Lenthening of Children with Achondroplasia

Свешников А.А., Попков А.В., Климов О.В., Ральникова С.В.


Both humeri of 17 achondroplasia patients aged from 12 to 16 years were lengthened using the method of bifocal distractional transosseous osteosynthesis. The formation of distractional regenerate bone was controlled by the method of рhoton absorptiometry. During distraction and fixation mineral content in medial area of the regenerate was lower, than in its other parts. By the end of fixation minerals distributed evenly along the distractional regenerate bone.
