Restoration of the lower limb length after total hip arthroplasty in children (early results)

Гаркавенко Ю.Е.

Abstract


Purpose. To study the possibilities of lower limb lengthening after total hip arthroplasty in children.
Material and Methods. The early results of the lower limb length restoration presented in 4 children at the age of 15-17 years after total hip arthroplasty.
Results. Maintaining the distraction device stability during femoral lengthening noted, and that of endoprosthesis stability in the long-term periods of observation as well.
Conclusion. The restoration of the lower limb length after total hip arthroplasty in children is possible by femoral lengthening. The negative effect of femoral lengthening on the degree of the hip endoprosthesis stability not found by preliminary data. Distraction regenerated bone forms within the average periods of time characteristic of the normal running of osteogenesis processes.
