The article presents several research studies involving limb lengthening and deformity correction presented in a peer-reviewed journal or presented the in several orthopaedic meetings in the U.S. It cites the study on the hazards in treating congenital extremity deficiencies and on the safety and accuracy of oblique osteotomy in treating Blount disease. It also notes the study on external fixation in acute and residual musculoskeletal trauma care and Charcot arthropathy of the foot and ankle.
