Tibia Hemimelia-A Rare Case Report
Author(s): Dharun Kumar M* and Venkat kiran
Tibial hemimelia (TH) is a rare congenital condition characterised by limb length discrepancy often associated with other congenital anomalies and deficiencies. There are limited reconstruction options, and management of choice remains amputation with prosthesis. The fibula is usually normally present, or duplicate or dysplastic. The quadriceps muscle is formed normally or absent or maybe associated with weakness, and the patella maybe formed normally, abnormally developed, or absent. Based on new classification scheme for jones type 4 tibia hemimelia, a new technique for reconstruction of limb is discussed in this report.
