Differences in limb length may be present at birth or develop after a fracture or traumatic injury. Children can sustain an injury that damages their growth plate, and as they continue to grow, the discrepancy in the length of their limbs may slowly increase. In these cases, bone lengthening surgery may be indicated. In turn, for a few years, it has been increasingly requested for aesthetic reasons.
In the 1950s, the orthopedic doctor Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov developed external implants, which, in addition to being unsightly, weighed about seven kilos and had to be worn for months. They were circular rings attached to the bone using crossed tension needles. This technique hindered the rehabilitation and recovery of joint mobility but was the only alternative to achieve growth or change the shape of the limb bones.
In recent years, with the incorporation of extensible nails to treat this type of pathology, the approach to treatment for doctors and patients has changed dramatically.
How does it work
This type of nails when going inside the bone prevents deviations from it in the elongation process. It can be extended up to 8 centimeters and the mechanism is reversible and adjustable according to the need of the doctor. In general, the process is performed from the seventh day of surgery using an external remote control. In this process, patients need a strict follow-up by the doctor, who will have to assess joint stiffness and bone formation with radiographs, for example.
It is a treatment that will require the commitment of the family, in the case of children, and of the patient since they are long procedures that will require psychological and kinesiological support.
