Rehabilitation of children with lesions of the proximal humeral metaepiphysis using transosseous distraction osteosynthesis technique

Cover Page

Abstract


We present an analysis of the treatment of 39 children with a shortening of the humerus after sustained osteomyelitis. Variants of lesions of the proximal humerus metaepiphysis are highlighted, and the differentiated approach to therapeutic measures depending on the identified changes resulted in a positive outcome.
