Abstract


Purpose. To study the mid-term results of lower limb lengthening in patients with pathologically short stature in equal view of lengthening amount, functional result, duration, encountered complications, and ways of their treatment.
Material and Methods. The results of the stages of lower limb lengthening considered in patients with systemic skeletal diseases accompanied by low height, in terms of Lascombes classification.
Results. The favorable and unfavorable factors highlighted in order to perform the planned treatment; these factors are required to be taken into consideration for staged surgical treatment of patients with pathologically short stature.
Conclusion. The classification of the results of lower limb lengthening according to Lascombes with some modifications for functional result analysis can be applied to the assessment when performed surgical increasing the height of patients with systemic skeletal diseases accompanied by pathologically low height.
