The Knud Jansen Lecture: The operative treatment of congenital limb malformation-part II: Case study
E. Marquardt *
The patient was born on 13 May 1965 with bilateral transverse upper arm 1/3 deficiency. Malformations of the lower limbs consisted of bilateral longitudinal femur subtotal deficiencies, bilateral fibula total deficiencies and bilateral ray (metatarsal and phalangeal) IV and V deficiencies. She suffered recurrent incidents of osseous overgrowth of the humerus on both sides and between 1969 and 1973 six reamputations were performed for this reason. Stump capping procedures employing autogenous cartilage-bone transplants were successfully carried out on each humeral stump in 1974.
