Calcaneal Neck Lengthening Osteotomy in Children With Artificial Bone Graft
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||pes plano valgus, flatfeet|
|Treatment||lateral lengthening osteotomy of calcaneus|
|Sponsor||University of Aarhus|
|Start date||September 2010|
|End date||October 2012|
|Trial size||10 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01618812, M-20090162|
In a group of children with severe and painful flatfeet lengthening procedures of calcaneus can be indicated. In this study the investigators use an artificial bone graft technique to avoid removing bone graft from the iliac crest.
Children with painful flatfeet
Healing of osteotomy
time frame: 104 weeks
Male or female participants from 8 years up to 20 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - pain - gait disturbance Exclusion Criteria: - post traumatic conditions
|Official title||Calcaneal Neck Lengthening Osteotomy - Allogen Bone Graft Material Versus a Hydroxyapatite / β- Tricalcium Phosphate Bone Substitute|
|Principal investigator||Martin Gottliebsen, PhD-student|
|Description||The aim is to study the clinical and radiological effects of calcaneal lengthening with either autogen bonegraft or a HA-βTCP graft material in a group of children with planovalgus. The hypothesis is that it is possible to achieve a stabile osteotomy with HA-βTCP graft material equal to the use of autogen bonegraft thus avoiding the need to obtaining iliac crest graft material at growing children.|
