Abstract

Unilateral temporary epiphysiodesis with Blount staples is a surgical method used to gradually correct axial deviations of the knee, slowing down the growth of one side of the conjugate cartilage. The authors analyse the results obtained with this method in the treatment of infantile valgus knee, in an attempt to determine an average monthly value of angular correction, based on which it is possible to plan the best time to perform this type of surgery. They affirm the effectiveness of the procedure, the success of which nonetheless appears to be related to the correct choice of the site of application and the number of staples used.
