- The most extensive review of limb lengthening ever written
- Comprehensive review of CFD, FH and TH classification, genetics, pathoanatomy, methods and results of treatment from the literature
- New strategies and surgical techniques illustrated for each surgical step
This book presents never before published techniques of reconstruction of congenital lower limb deficiencies. In the past the only successful and universally accepted treatment for these conditions was amputation. Even the classifications of these conditions are meanwhile outdated. This book presents new classifications that are becoming widely accepted and gives a comprehensive review of CFD, FH and TH classification, genetics, pathoanatomy, methods and results of treatment from the literature. New strategies and surgical techniques are illustrated for each surgical step, including the superhip, superknee and superankle procedures. The more conventional methods of amputation and prosthetic fitting are discussed in detail and put into perspective compared to lengthening reconstruction surgery. This is the first such forum ever presented to help surgeons decide between these two very different methods. The newest innovative prosthetic reconstructive surgical techniques such as modified Brown rotationplasty are taught with new previously unpublished illustrations. This book will change the management of these conditions and become the classic in its field.
