Growth impairment and limited range of joint motion in children should raise suspicion of an attenuated form of mucopolysaccharidosis: expert opinion

Growth impairment together with bone and joint involvement is common to most patients with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) disorders. The genetic basis for these metabolic disorders involves various enzyme deficiencies responsible for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). The incomplete degradation and subsequent accumulation of GAGs result in progressive tissue damage...

Residual bone growth after lengthening procedures

The prognosis of limb length discrepancy is a major subject in paediatric orthopaedic surgery. The strategy depends on the prognosis and must be adapted to each patient. The residual growth of the lengthened segment often remains unknown, but is dependent on age, the percentage of lengthening and other factors. Using a large cohort of 150 children who had undergone bone...

Current approaches to flexible intramedullary nailing for bone lengthening in children

Limb-length discrepancies and extremity deformities are among the most common non-traumatic orthopaedic conditions for which children are hospitalised. There is a need to develop new treatment options for lower-limb length discrepancy in order to ameliorate treatment outcomes, avoid or reduce rates of complication and provide early rehabilitation. The authors report on the basic...
