Predicting the loss of knee flexion during limb lengthening using inherent muscle length.

Abstract:

Limb lengthening procedures can be associated with loss of range of knee movement, although the amount of knee flexion lost varies markedly between patients. The exact aetiology of this problem is not fully understood. This study investigates whether the amount of joint range that is lost during limb lengthening might be affected by the inherent passive compliance and length of the patients' soft tissues determined preoperatively. A simple mathematical model has been developed to calculate th...
