Research Highlight

Dr. Iobst and colleagues collaborated on a multi-national study of radiographs outcomes following limb lengthening using three types of internal lengthening nails. The study include 366 limbs after nail removal. Findings included a marked difference in frequency of radiographic abnormalities at the telescoping junction of the nail found following STRYDE lengthening compared to PRECICE or FITBONE lengthening.

Great job colleagues! What a great example of LLRS research collaboration!
