Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three cases of congenital pseudarthrosis of the fibula are reported, all with prepseudarthrotic involvement of the omolateral tibia. In patients with this condition, correction of valgus deformity should be deferred until puberty, and the occurrence of tibial fractures should be prevented by means of leg splints.
