Title: Epiphyseal plate repair using fat interposition to reverse physeal deformity : an experimental study
Author: Foster, Bruce Kristian
Issue Date: 1989
School/Discipline: Dept. of Pathology
Abstract: Hypothesises that the physis has an internal mechanism of repair to restore physeal function. Aims to establish a defined degree of deformity by partial growth plate excision, then to examine different methods of reversal of such deformity to observe the process of growth plate repair. A secondary aim was to define the percentage of physis that could be resected yet still enable reversal of deformity.
