Abstract

Bone lengthening through corticotomy, slow distraction through the fracture callus and stabilization with an external frame by a single operative procedure has proved effective. Until few years ago it has been used above all for lower limb. Now some authors proposed it in correction of congenital malformations of upper limb. We show our cases, based on 28 operations in 24 patients with a good follow-up. We think that bone lengthening is a good technique to reach a good function, to correct the angular deviation and also to give a better look to the limb. We underline that the treatment of some malformation, as ulnar or radial club hand, have to be changed with the introduction of bone lengthening. Good results, poor complications and the easiness of technique suggest to use it in most of congenital malformation of upper limb, rarely alone, often with other classic ones.
