MALADIE DE BLOUNT PDF

Because of the bowing, a leg-length discrepancy may result. This may result in disability if the discrepancy is significant greater than 1 inch and is not treated. The cause is unknown but is thought to be due to the effects of weight on the growth plate. The inner part of the tibia , just below the knee, fails to develop normally, causing angulation of the bone. It can cause severe bowing of the legs and can affect one or both legs.

Because of the bowing, a leg-length discrepancy may result. This may result in disability if the discrepancy is significant greater than 1 inch and is not treated. The cause is unknown but is thought to be due to the effects of weight on the growth plate. The inner part of the tibia , just below the knee, fails to develop normally, causing angulation of the bone. It can cause severe bowing of the legs and can affect one or both legs.

This condition is more common among children of African ancestry. It is also associated with obesity , short stature, and early walking. Diagnosis Edit Physical examination shows the lower legs to be angled inward.

An x-ray of the knee and the lower leg confirms the diagnosis. Besides the X-ray appearance. Nevertheless both disorders may need surgical intervention in the form of bone osteotomy or more commonly guided growth surgery. The clinical appearance and the characteristic radiographic are important to confirm the diagnosis.

In some cases, surgery may be performed. This second, much smaller surgery is most effective in children with less severe bowing and significant growth remaining. Return to normal function and cosmetic appearance is expected if the knee can be properly aligned.
