abstract

  • The limb lengthening regenerate healing of RSS patients is faster than the healing of patients with other congenital etiologies and tumor patients, and is as fast as the regenerate healing of patients with posttraumatic LLD. Although all RSS patients were treated with human growth hormone (hGH), we are unable to isolate the hGH contribution to the regenerate bone healing. We conclude that RSS patients can have safe limb lengthening.
